Yup! Here's a link to the thread when I got it on turbobricks: http://forums.turbobricks.com/...68426
Any ideas on how to hook these up? I found the metal cable from the speedometer but where does it hook to?
I got the speedometer hooked up but it reads about 10 mph when I'm going about 25 mph...
There's a silver metal cable that's ribbed hanging from the speedo/odometer that I'm guessing is the odometer, I just can't figure out where to hook it up to?
Also I traced the tach's wires and there's a red and a white one that both lead into the engine bay. I think the red one goes to the coil but where's the white one go to? Ground?
It sounds like you have the connections for the speedometer correct. Didn't t- you change your transmission from an auto to a manual? If so you need to change the speedo drive gear in the transmission as the auto cars and manual cars have different final gears and would cause your speedo error.
You can do this on the car. The area where the speedo cable goes in the transmsission is removable, there is a bolt next to where the cable goes in, remove it and the drive gear section will come out. You need to take the nylon gear from your automatic and put it in your manual transmission. This will fix your speedo error, assuming you gauge works correctly.
If you get a chance, check out the yahoo group for Volvo 1800s, there are lots of smart guys over there.
