93 T-Bird stuck odometer

Speedo on my '93 T-Bird works fine but odometer seems stuck, doesn't add any miles. Bought it like this about a year ago. Anyone know how this works? Maybe something is unplugged, or do these odometers just go out sometimes? I need to know how to get it working or replace it. Thanks for any help!

Speedo

Doc Here,

Usually on Non~Electronic Speedos, the gear drive for the Numeric Readout Rusts up, and can not be driven by the Main Weight body.

You Can try to remove the Cluster , half the speedo, and soak the numeric readout in WD40, let it soak awhile, and try driving the unit with a Drill motor.

The reason the Numeric Readout locks up and not the MPH clock is because the MPH readout Relays on very little force to move it, and the readout is solid mechanical..The drive motor is nothing more than a magnet spinning inside a metal drum...with little torque.

Legally, If you repair it, you need to make an estimate of the miles it was in-op and report it when you change title, but I doubt anyone ever does...

Good Luck!
Doc

Thanks to both!

Anybody else? Anyone know how hard it is to remove the cluster and speedo? I suspect the steering wheel comes off first and everything pops out that direction. Anything that requires special care to disconnect/remove?
