OK, I don't understand, but I'll take it. This morning, I took the Spit out
for a run, and after about 5 miles or so, the speedo settled down and
the odometer started working again. I didn't do anything, honest.
With 1 week to go before the ABRR, I'll take any good news I can.
I just went out to check the alignment, it's OK, but I noticed that
the left engine mount is broken. Something else to fix. My work is
cut out for me.

Subject: Speedometer problems
Has anyone had their speedometers go wonky with no notice? My speedo
was working fine until last night. I took the car out for a drive, and after
driving a short way, the odo showed about 5 miles from home. OK, thought
I. Then, after driving another 5 miles or so, I looked down again to see
it only showed an increase of 2.5 miles and the needle was bouncing all
over the place. Keeping one eye on the road and one on the gauge, the
odo had stopped recording distance and the speedo was still bouncing.
Any ideas? I planned on pulling the cover this weekend, and checking the
cable. But if anyone has any better suggestions, I would appreciate hearing
