65 out and about

Well got the ride height sorted out, new rear springs and raised up the fronts and set the shock to its middle setting (+5 clicks) and she drives SWEET, firm but not harsh, no more front wheel rub. spoke with john at Autometer and figured out the problems with the fuel gauge and speedo (still need to fix it though) but couldn't resist taking her out for a cruise to the beach with the wife. Could not count how many thumbs up and dropped jaw looks we got.

Everything's new with my 65 but the speedo has a problem and it's actuallu in the gage itself where the speedo hooks up. Howling noise and random speeds are shown. I have to unscrew it til I figure it out?? The fuel gage works in some ways?? New wiring (maybe a ground issue there)

Any tips about the speedo??

Thanx Ric
