    So I have a 1971 Dart swinger with this kind of speedo. Can any one tell me where I can find another one like this one? All I seem to find are way different. 50180F75-993B-4D92-9D48-8187DFEF2D56.jpeg

    Are you in need of the speedometer, out of the housing or an entire cluster

    Speedometer. Everything else in the cluster/dash works fine

    Just out of curiosity, what is the issue with the speedo? Is it not moving or is it 20 mph off?

    Does your speedo have press on cable or screw on cable?

    Go to eBay and search for "Dart Custom Gauge Cluster"
    I saw 2 of those just a few minutes ago. $175 to $225

      This and several others. The original Hemmings Motor News has quite a few resources that advertise and market to a wider group than just muscle cars.

        68 up it's a press on cable. Send to speedometer shop. Light oil inside slip ring is probably dried out causing needle to stick and not return to zero if that's the issue. You may be able to remove the speedometer from the cluster yourself, and carefully clean and re oil it with light sewing machine oil to free it up so it zeroes out.

          Also the clock spring can rotate not allowing the needle to return to zero. I have this issue with my 70 cluster and need to pull it apart again. Did it once already, but it rotated again due to vibration. Will put a drop of of rtv to hold it next time.

            That is a standard Dart cluster (non rally dash) Here's one that was never sold according to the sale thread. They are very common and shouldn't be too hard to find. [FOR SALE] - 1970 Dart Instrument Cluster

            You need to start a wanted thread.

              My late '68 is a screw-on cable.

                It won’t return to zero or even give me a good read on how fast I’m moving

                Is that what my gauge cluster is considered? Dart Custom?

                I would be down to go that route as well. Is it a hard thing to fix?

                My swinger has that cluster. It is a standard cluster. It is a non-rallye dash.

                Obviously not the right one. From a Valiant possibly? Or a B body car?

                The application says Plymouth. You have a Dodge.

                A speedo/gauge shop can run your speedo, make repairs, lube and calibrate for under $200. Check your cable while your at it.

                Bad cable doesn't prevent needle from returning.

                Start a want ad in "Cars and Mopar Parts Wanted. Somebody has a speedo here for you. There's a lot of parts cars around. Oldmanmopar probably has a half dozen. You could contact him through a private message if you didn't want to place an ad.
