    Driving the other day my speedometer stopped working, but the odometer still turns. The speedo has always registered accurate and very smooth, but as I was driving it just dropped to the bottom and stays there. I do hear a slight grinding or sliding noise coming from it now.

    Is there anything quick to check for, or is it in need of professional help ? Its in a 51 Pontiac.

    Thanks much !!!!

    Sounds like the speedcup is broken (it is connected to the shaft that the speedometer needle rides on). It will need to come out and be repaired. Check for a local speedo shop in your area (support your local shops) If you can not find anyone local PM me or check our website.

    Try Metro Tachograph in Etobicoke (416)236-2495, I've heard they're good.
