My speedometer Standard, bad bearings, there are parts to buy?
Can anyone help me with parts maybe?
Russ Furstnow repairs speedometers, but unfortunately a Standard speedometer from 1915 had lots of bad quality pot metal that usually swells, cracks and crumbles with age, so there's a big risk it can't be repaired.
Here's an earlier thread about your type of speedo with contact info for Russ: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/263066.html?1349338519
Of the five makes of Ford Specials in 1915, the Standard was the worst. Sorry I couldn't be more positive.
If that little window at the bottom is the "shows the highest speed un-till reset", someone was booking down the road!
Larry I understand that they are difficult. Mine is bad in the bearings.
Mark, The window at the bottom shows the trip mileage for the speedometer.
Ake, The bearings in a Standard come in a small housing. Typically, the bearings don't go bad but as the pot metal swells, the bearing race becomes loose in the pot metal frame and the centrifugal weights move erratically. While I have been able to repair some Standard speedometers, they aren't the best units available.
Thanks for that Russ
I would also say that the speedometer on my picture is just one similar to mine.
Russ repaired my Standard Ford Special speedometer and I am very happy with it. It works - and looks - great Russ!
Russ I sent you a PM about an AC speedometer.
I got it, they used a wheel like the moon phase dial on a clock. I misunderstood something in the speedometer book. Not the first nor the last.
