Your problem is NOT a fuse. The speedometer receives an electronic signal from an analogue transmitter mounted in the rear differential. It's the little button in the rear diff with two wires attached to it. Check to see if the wiring is chaffed or broken. If not, then it's probably the transmitter. A competent mechanic should be able to replace one for less than 200.00, parts and labor. If this does not fix it, then the problem is in the head, which can be expensive. You might get a used head if you can get a 90 day guarrantee on the part from the salvage company.

Good Luck!

Odometer has packed up


I go to a junk yard in North Carolina that has a few 740's-- I also have a working one that is out, but the speedometer is not working. They are somewhat hard to find--I got one recently for $35. I think I saw a few others. Let me know if I can help. C
