I did a search and know what I have to do, but just wanted to vent!
I just re-installed the dash carrier in my 69. Took it apart to cleanup some stuff and repaint the chrome. (Had the car down for radiator/fan/pump replacecent)
When I went for a drive the speedo started chirping and the needle started bouncing. It got rapidly worse and louder until the speedo wrapped itself past 120 mph all the way around to 10 mph. All this in just a couple of miles (I was doing maybe 50 mph).
I stopped and diconnected it for fear of doing damage.
My question is why it started doing this? It worked flawlessly before I disconnected/reconnected it. I didn't change the routing or anything. Could I have somehow damaged it by not touching it?
I'm going down to get some lube and try that, but it's just frustrating.
On top of this, the fan belt came off and when it got hot it blew off the upper new raditor hose! I'm getting pretty good at washing the coolant off the car!!
Thanks for listening.
