Try United Speedometer Service

http://www.speedometershop.com/aut-pag.htm

Click on Encore Guages. They say they rebuild old guages for modern use, including 49,50, 51 Ford.

I guess they really are not what they advertise as "We're your local speedometer shop".

I used this guy once to make up a speedo cable at my shop. He did everything he said he would and he seemed honest. He said that he worked for united speedo service at one time. He said that he repaired gauges also. Here is his website: http://home.att.net/~kbhugunin/krisspeedometer.html I think that united speedometer service will update your old gauges with new movements instead of doing a repair. I know that they quoted me a crazy price, ( 570.00 in '97), to do a set out of a 51 willys PU so my customer had me install a set of VDO's instead.

I used a place over by Detroit a few years ago, located just south on I96. They were listed in Hemmings. They redid the gauges in my '67.

What was that Bob? Geezer-something.

Bob's Speedometer was located off of I-96, but has moved near Brighton, MI. I was there with a friend, who had some '69 Charger gauges repaired and refaced and was very happy with their work. Their number is 800-592-9673. They're not cheap, but as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for."
I know they do some old antique guages,(early 1900's.) so they probably can do anything we could throw at them.
