Subject: Wacky speedometer

The speedometer in my '86 900 8v (115k mi) is registering ~30-40 mph more than the actual speed at 65 mph. This is the second speedometer in the car (original replaced at 25k mi). Soon after it turned 100k mi, the speedo needle started bouncing erratically. It still bounces at low speed and stabilizes above 50 mph. However it's reading 100-115 mph when I'm actually going 65. The odometer is also running fast, though not as much as the speedo might indicate. It clocks up 20 mi. for every 19 actually driven. Any suggestions for fixing this? Is it a sign of impending failure on the speedo? ____________________________________________________________________ Greg Youngen
