ok, got it running well.

now the next problem (small ) is the tripmeter ..

zero it out , than it is ok to 20miles, then when 21 miles rolls over it drags to 120 miles..

30 miles rolls it over to 230 miles..

the tens number seems to bring the hundreds number with it .

any fix's ???

There's only one way to fix that and you won't like it.



You have to take the speedo apart. Not as simple on that model.



The trip meter and odometer has the numbers on rotating rollers with the numbers on it. There is a reverse gear system built into each rolling number part. Between those parts is a metal shim with notches on them. One turns 10 times and then it turns the other but in your case the two are stuck together.



That's my answer.

Also the simplest way I can think of trying to repair the gauge without taking it apart is to drill a hole in the bottom of it in a place where you think you can take a small thin screwdriver and stick it through to try to separate the two numbers. I wouldn't be afraid of drilling a hole up to 1/2 inch because you could just put good tape like ductape on it. By spinning the trip meter you can see if it worked.
