Shop manuals can be obtained from any of the Tbird parts suppliers.

Speedometer & Tach removal

Trying to remove the Speedometer from my "57 Tbird, member Yadkin sent a "Gils Garage" article on the it, but I can't access the right side screws enough to remove them!! I have worked on many electromechanical machines, including some car work back in the day, so IF Anyone knows how to access the right side, from underneath, to remove this Speedometer I would LOVE to know how it's done!! Need all the help I can get, as I've spend Hours trying to do this!! Thanks!
