Re: Does the indicator stalk have to be on the left?

You could remove the indicator housing & gently sand, wet/dry or file off some materail so it will clamp tighter, or tape as you have said but it might show & look naf.
Good luck.

Re: Speedo refurb

Karl,
Looking at the image you sent me of the speedo in your van, 100kph the equivilent mph unit would be 70mph. I do have a spare 70mph face as asked but that would leave you with mph speed & kph odometer.

Re: RHD '59' 23 Samba... From Sweden.(My Retirement Project!

Steve,
Not sure if you are aware but the speedo shown in your pic is from a Beetle & not an original Splitscreen unit.
Sorry if you already new or sorry if you didn't.

1st reply was obviously meant in jest & not taken that way, However subsequent replies are bordering on being rude.
