speedometer

not sure if this is a tranny question or not, i have a 82 chevy camaro with a mild 350 and a th-350 bolted to it, i put a new speedometer cable on and went to a junk yard and found a nice mechanical speedometer out of a new camaro, my problem is is that the needle jumps around and i'm not excactly sure what speed i'm going is there any way to fix and calibrate that or just get an electrical on thats you can calibrate, will the electric one do the same thing????

If the needle is jumping on a mechanical speedo it is usually the gear on the tranny end of the cable. Disconnect the cable and run it with an electric drill. If it runs smooth it is not a problem from there to the speedo. Pull the gear out of the side of the tranny and you will probably see teeth missing or badly worn in one spot. Replace the gear.
