Question about Ford E-350
The speedometer on a 1985 economy 350 is not working. I changed the cables and still nothing
Check the gear very carefully that goes on the end at the transmission.It is plastic,and retained with a metal spring clip.The plastic can become "applecored" where as it doesnt make contact with the drive teeth on the transmission output shaft.If the gear is in order,the speedo cable operates correctly,and checks out ok,then it is likely a bad speedo head in the dash.Later model Ford trucks all used a PSOM (programmable,speedomoeter,odometer module) that was known to be somewhat problematic,but i think your year Ford is too early to have a PSOM.
