An inaccurate Smith's gauge? No way.  :)

First, you must determine if you have the correct speedometer for the 
transmission. On the speedometer there are some numbers on the bottom, 
usually something like 1280 or 1000, in the number. And we must know 
whether the transmission is overdrive or not. That way, we can determine if 
you have the right setup.

For more information on creatively calibrating your speedometer, check this 

Nina provided this link last week, and I found and downloaded a nice little 
guide on Smith's speedometers here.
