On 1974  and 1975 Corvettes with 4-speed transmission, an inoperative speedometer due to a stripped riven gear may be the result of high internal friction in the speedometer adapter.

For service, vehicles exhibiting this problem may be corrected by the following method:

  1. Remove driven gear and replace with new gear of same part number and color.
  2. Remove and discard production adapter and key and install new adapter and key.

General Motors bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, not a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform those technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, do not assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See a General Motors dealer servicing your brand of General Motors vehicle for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
