Does anybody know how to calibrate a 190E speedo?

Took the 190e's speedo apart again to solve the odometer failure, looks like I got it this time.

After reinstalling it, it is obvious the MPH reading is off.

I had to pull the speedo needle off and I guessed at the appropriate position to reinstall it.

There should be a line BELOW the peg on the speedo's face to re-align the needle, after installing the needle to that position you must slightly lift the needle & then it will be spring loaded to the peg.

Thanks, I will look for the line. Is it on the edge of the face? Or towards the middle.

Nice to hear from someone who has "been there and done that"
