Speedometer change?

Hey guys,

On an 82 300D, can you change the speedometer out with one that will read more than the Nader type (85 mph). Is there a simple drop in, or will the output gearing for the speedo cable need to be changed?

You need to replace it with a speedo from a 83 or 84 300D, they had the same gearing with a 125 mph speedo. The 85 300D has different gearing. The early (non-turbo) 300D also had different gearing. BTW, the 83-84 speedo does not have the chrome dot on the gauge, so you have to transfer it from your old one.
