    LTB - 93-94 CVPI Speedometer or instrument cluster

    Just in case my repair of my digital speedo doesn't turn out as I hope, does anyone happen to have an early aero CVPI speedometer head?

    Repair worked... still want one of these if anyone can find one.

    Edit: Repair failed again. Bah.

      Correction... 93/94 only. 92 and 95+ use different setups.

          This one?


          They're located here in Texas.

          I emailed them to check.

          I also emailed the rearcounter seller.

            The guy via RearCounter didn't have any more, so that's a bad listing. NOS PARTS LTD didn't have any either. So... yeah. Looks like I'll be using an Intellitronix Speedometer now. Kinda wish I had used one of these to begin with since it's a LOT lower profile and may be able to fit under the cluster plastic. I think I can use up to 2001 clear part of the cluster. That will make it easier to just repair what I've done with mine.

              I hate when stuff is out of stock because the inventory has not been updated. That happens frequently with Car-Part.com too.

                Found a recent addition P71 to a Georgia pick-n-pull just east of Atlanta: https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/2FALP71W8RX159339
                If the instrument cluster is anywhere near okay, I would gladly pay someone in the area for their time to go get it out.

                  Would be nice if they showed photos of the exact part as opposed to just the junk cars sitting there (or is there ones I missed).

                    What, Row52?

                    Row52 is a network for connecting people who aren't in a position to pull parts, with people who are in a position to pull parts, in self-serve (u-pull) junkyards,
                    Since u-pull junkyards do not (and practically cannot) inventory parts, of course it just shows a car - all that is known is that the car exists, not what remains of it.
                    You'd have to connect with a part puller to go there and scope it out.

                      Yeah, if nobody is near there, no worries. I'll have a working speedo by the end of this weekend. I would just kinda like to get a stock looking setup back in there at this point. This is not a rush project.

                        OK. Makes sense now. I was not familiar with this type of business. Thought it was just a business that just sells used parts and thus has an inventory.
