Hi John,

If you are talking about 100mph dead Speedo, be aware that there are 2 types ! 5 digits and 6 digits :) just to ask properly. :)

It's a 1965 car, I think the one I have is it's original, I'll have a look. What should it be?

6 digits on the mileage- early 100 speedos didn’t have 10ths, later ones did.
