From One Chevy Tri-Five Enthusiast To Another!

A day of firsts and no speeding

Marc called me and said the speedo gear was in and to bring the car by for a couple hours while he installed and tweaked everything. I gladly obliged and had it there in no time flat (glad the speedometer works now so I won’t drive faster than the posted limit). He had it installed in less time than quoted (man those guys at Automaniacs are good at what they do!) and I was soon on the road grinning ear to ear.

Today was the first real test drive with the new 700r transmission and with the new working speedometer. I took a video of the first road test of my new transmission and speedometer to see how accurate the speed was. The needle waved a tiny bit but was pretty much right on the money. I love it when a plan comes together!
