Default speedo correction

I have 3.73s and I my speedo is way off. I know that I have to change the tooth or something like that. What I'm asking is how do you do that? sorry if this is a repost.

Have a look C for gear sizes & prices. http://www.steeda.com/store/-catalog/speedometer.htm

To install, follow the speedo cable to where it goes into the transmission. There will be a small bolt holding a bracket that keeps the speedo cable inserted into the tranny. Remove that bolt & slide the cable out from the tranny. You'll see the gear hanging on the end of the cable, now change it & put back together. Piece-O-Cake!

see the stickie at the top of this section for what gear you need as far as number of teeth goes.

that may well be true but since he didn't say what he had here I have to go on what is presented and not try to be a mind reader either! LOL
if you can't tell already, I don't spend a lot of time in the new members section nor do I try to remember a lot about what mods everybody has either, too much for my feeble old brain to retain.

I've never entered the new members section, nor have I heard his mods. I clicked on his name & looked in his profile.
