The speedometer cable needs to be greased up soon or the cable will break. Then you will have no reading on the speedometer and not know how fast you are driving.

Speedometer erratic...replaced fuse and was ok for 24 hours Honda Civic 1998

Your speedometer is driven by a speed sensor that is on the top side of the transmission. It would be worth your trouble to locate it, and unplug the electrical connector to see if it is clean and connected well. If everything looks ok, you are down to it or the actual speedometer unit.

Usually, if the transmission speed sensor is bad, you have other driveability issues too, so you might have just a minor problem.

Speedometer erratic/intermittent

I don't know what is causing this problem, but I know phil140701's answer is completely wrong on two counts. First, 740 Volvos starting at least in 1986 have electronic speedometers and no cable. There is an electronic sensor on the differential which sends a signal to the speedometer cluster. Second, if it were strictly mechanical with a cable then the voltage regulator could have no effect on it at all.
