Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good but not built to last When I bought my car, the person I bought it from had removed the original gauges and installed an entire set of these arctic white Autometer gauges. The odometer registered 70K miles the day I bought it. After about 3 years, at 78K miles, the speedometer began acting up, with the needle flailing back and forth as I drove. After a day or two, the needle broke off. It didn't fall off, it broke off right above where it connects to the pivot. As there was no way to get inside the speedometer to repair the needle or find out what went wrong, I had to buy a new speedometer. So I bought one to match the set. I had no problems for three years, But today, as I was driving, the speedometer failed again. This time the needle doesn't move, and I hear a clicking noise as if the gears are not quite engaging. The odometer reads 6,431.7 and it's dead for all intents and purposes. Given what you charge for your equipment, I would expect a speedometer to last more than 3 years. And, replacing the speedometer in my 1977 vehicle is a challenge. The last time the housing crumbled due to age and I had to rebuild it with epoxy. I was hoping to not have to do this again for a long time, if ever.

when it says the gauge is 3-1/8" is that the size of hole that it will fit in, or the outer diameter of the bezel?

Asked by: Forestb
Thank you for connecting with us. The 1396 Arctic White Speedometer fits into a 3-1/8" diameter hole. The overall bezel diameter is 3-3/8". We usually refer to the hole size when we reference an instrument size, but there are some exceptions like 5" which actually fit into a 4-5/8" hole. Please feel free to reach out to us if you ever need confirmation on any hole sizes. You can give us a ring at 866.248.6356, hit the Chat link at the top of the page or you can email us here:
