Dashboard Single Dials

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if I can fit single dials rather than a set of clocks, my rh is Sierra running gear and I wondered if I could fit dials that would work with existing speedo cable

Thanks Derzo

Single dials are a common fitment. You can get mechanical speedos, but it may be difficult getting an accurate reading.

Most of us have fitted electronic speedos that have sensors that work off magnets or bolt heads at the rear of the propshaft.

They can easily be adjusted to get an accurate reading.

I have fitted single smiths guages I got from a scrapped triumph dolomite.

Fortunately the standard ford mechanical drive works at 1000 turns per mile.

The Smiths guages were marked in small letters on the dial as 1000 so an exact match.

Of course if you change the diff ratio or change the rolling radius of the wheels you loose the calibration.
