Hi all,

The plastic piece in the dash was broken. Like a ford, the problem is in the circle

Any fixes for this?

Check the 58 60 forum. Someone there had a fix for a broken indicator about a month ago.

Ha, my speedo and shift indicators are both broken. Guys at the inspection station freak out. I tell them, just shift it into gear. You can feel the gear shifts. The whole truck shakes.
As for speed, there is enough indicator left to point at speed. For highway use, I use RPMs because the speedo only goes to 85. We have a toll road with an 85 MPH limit.

I plan to install a new shift indicator assembly. As for the speedo, a new 5” Autometer will take its place and RPM gauge too.

I went to X-Ray School in Tyler, Tyler Junior College, 82-84. Did my clinical at what was then called Medical Center Hospital, now called the East Texas Hospital Foundation at Tyler, with several outlying hospitals under that banner also. I lived out on Hwy 64 East. Because I did't have an East Texas accent, I was always being asked where I was from. "Washington State"; "oh, you're a Yankee". Got to where I'd ask them, "What's a Yankee"; "anyone north of the Mason-Dixon line", and then I'd ask them, "where is the Mason-Dixon line". Most could't answer that. Then I'd say, "you know what, we're ALL Yankees to the rest of the world". Got some strange looks with that; did that Yankee just call ME a Yankee? Very good people, and I would't trade my time there for anything, just a little too hot for me. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
