1965 speedometer

can anyone tell me easiest way to remove speedometer needle from one speedometer and attach to another. I assume its a press fit. Do not want to damage needle removing. Thanks.

Should be able to just remove it. May be a small screw in the back

You might take a minute and call Pete Serio. You should be able to find him by googling his name. He knows everything there is to know about Pontiac speedometers.

X2! SUPER easy to break off the needle/screw up the speedo head. And then you'll be buying another unit. Personally, I would not mess with it.

Nothing to fear. Removing the needle will not mess up your speedo. They are simply pressed onto the speedo shaft. Some will just pull off. I had one where I had to leverage from behind the needle with thwo right angle screw drivers. That scratched the guage face but I had a replacement. When you reinstall the needle, have it clocked to anywhere above "0". After it is pressed on you can rotate the needle counterclockwise to set the needle at "0".
