    First guess, Broken speedo cable. To test unscrew it from the tranny and turn it while someone watches the speedo for needle movement.

    ok i couldnt look at the tranny part...no lift yet.

    i did however discover that the knurled knob was undone at the back of the speedo. I reconnected that--still no luck. also noticed that the "trip odometer" cable was just floating in fid-air not doing anything...must figure out where that goes.

    What do you know about where your car came from?
