the VDO I have has a bracket that mounts in the center of the hub just below where the speedometer cable screws in. Just a larger thread with a nut and it pushes the bracket against back of dash to make it tight. what mount has this one have.

Asked by: Tom T.
This product has a bracket similar to these: But obviously larger to fit the gauge.

This looks like it could be used as a very close replacement for a VDO Cockpit series, cable driven, 3-1/8” speedometer. Other than the chrome bezel am I correct in that? Mainly concerned with hookup and fit.

Asked by: Dan J
While we can't speak for VDO replacement, this speedometer will indeed drop into a 3-1/8" hole, and has a 5/8-18 fitting with .104" square key way, driven at a 1:1 ratio, 60 mph=1,000 RPM.

wanting to know if this comes in 3 3/8th size

Asked by: Spokesy
Thank you for reaching out to us. We offer several 3-3/8" mechanical speedometers, but not in the Designer Black series. Currently we offer only an electronic 1480 and GPS option 1449. You could create something very close, however, in our Custom Shop:

I have a 1988 chevy s10 and was wondering if it would work with its 700r4

Asked by: Redneck649
Thank you so much for contacting us. Our mechanical speedometers are a universal product and will work with any transmission/transfer case with a cable output. They are designed to read 60 MPH at 1000 rpm. We recommend a company called Speedometer Services (414.463.6660) for cables and the associated gears necessary to calibrate the speedometer to your vehicle. Hope this helps!
