Hoping that someone can help- I have a 1983 Airstream 300 that is in need of a speedometer or speedo repair. Does anyone have a suggestion? I am looking for the same one that I have because all of the other gauges still work and I want them to match. It looks to be a very basic speedo- I have seen this style before but I do not know the manufacture of the gauge. If there is not a matching speedo availible I would also like information on if anyone has a contact that may be able to rebuild the existing one. Can anyone identify the manufacture of this by chance?

APT instruments can fix your existing one. I've had great service from them on several repairs.

When mine went bad our local speedo shop told me these particular type of speedo's are sealed in a way that you have to destroy it to get it apart.

There's a picture of new speedometer I bought in a thread titled 'Speedometer Source", on page 1 of the Classic Motorhome section here.

As far as matching goes be advised the only thing I discovered with new speedo is now the face of tach is obviously showing it's age and was not noticeable before.
