How difficult is it to tear down old AIrguide speedometers? I have two on a 1979 that I am restoring that work fine, just want to clean up the dials and paint the pointers. Info would be appreciated

There is someone on here who has sent some gauges off to have them reworked. I think to company is in Fort Lauderdale, FL. That is one choice you may have if you fell a DIY project is out of the question. Hopefully someone will respond to your thread. I will try to search for the post for you too.

The old ones that mounted on the flat surface are pretty easy to take apart. I reworked three that I had into two good ones. As I recall there are two or three screws on the back that hold the two halves of the chrome rings together. I think one of the screws was orginally covered with some sort of label on mine. I cleaned everything and touched up some paint. I replaced the rubber gromet where the adjusting screw goes through the glass. Since it sounds like you have working speedos now just be careful with the diaphram and the spring and you should be fine. I think I have some pics at home.

Thanks, I got them all apart and they are pretty easy to work on. Nothing out of the ordinary. I learned alongtime ago when taking stuff apart, makesure you really look at stuff real close so you can remeber where stuff goes.
