Hi!!! :D
My Speedo now seems to be bouncing instead of a nice smooth flowing motion!! It is really annoying!! I look down at the speedo and i don't know if i am doing 40 or 50?? Can anyone help?? Where to look??
Thanks

Yep, bruter's right... Speedo cable needs lubing or needs replacing depending how long it's been doing it. You can still buy replacement speedo cables through your neighborhood Ford Parts counter...

Unscrew it from the back of the speedohead under the dash (pain in the a$$ to get to!) then pull it down and the inside cable will pull out of the housing. A real thin grease type lube works the best, you dont want to use like wheel bearing grease or anything like that it will wear the speedo gears out. Goto your local parts store and tell them you need something to lube your speedo cable and they should point you in the right direction..
