I've an oppurtunity to pick up a rather abused S13 for a, I'm guessing, good price. I noticed only one thing wrong with it...the speedo doesn't work! Easy fix or avoid it altogether?

Hmmm, if its only the speedo then the motor must be dead. Look around for a new cluster for your s13 and have the miles adjusted accordingly and install it yourself. It isnt that hard. While you are at it you can put in some Indiglo Needles and White Face Gauges. Read the post of mine @ <a href="http://www.zilvia.net/forum/topic.cgi?forum=1&topic=169" target='_blank'>http://www.zilvia.net/forum/topic.cgi?forum=1&amp;topic=169</a> for an address for more info.

It could also be a bad VSS or the VSS could have been disconnected to get rid of the speed limiter.

I have no idea if it'd fit in an s13, but I have the white-faced guage cluster from my '95 SE that I've been tryin to sell.
Anyone know if it'll fit??
