When looking through the telescope eyepeice(viewfinder), right is left and left is right, the view is fliped. Is that normal?

Yes, all astronomical telescopes invert the image-- it's normal, nothing is wrong with the scope.

Speed odmeter does not work - how to repair

Most cars of 98 vintage will use a square section cable drive cable to deliver rotational information from the side of the transmission final drive to the odometer. Check the speedo cable connection to the transmission, the end of the cable sleeve has a flange that is held into a recess on the side of the transmission by a circlip. The square section cable sticks out of the end of the flanged sleeve and engages with a square socket within the transmission. A similar arrangement is found on the rear of the odometer except the sleeve is usually attached by a threaded circular nut. Make sure the ends are attached.

I went and bought one of these for $25 but the 60mm eyepeice was not is there. I am wondering what other eyepeices can be used for this telescope so I can get greater manification since all i have is the...

Well that's about all it is worth! You bought a toy telescope of about 60mm not much larger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars which would have been better for astronomy.

You can buy .965 eyepieces on Ebay at Telescope Warehouse. They are almost as much as you paid for the telescope. This is a 2inch scope so your maximum possible magnification in perfect conditions and with perfect optics will be about 100 power. (50 times aperture).

Read my TIPS on my profile page. Next time buy one of these in at least a 6 inch or 8 inch size.

Point the scope to a distant object like the top of a telephone pole.

Without moving the telescope adjust the small screws on the finder scope to LINE-UP on the same object.

My banner scope in 4 to 12 wii not hold zero

I'd start by looking at the mounting bases.
First tighten the scope ring screws to 25 inch pounds, then loosen and remove the rings from the base(s) while still attached to the scope.
Back out the base screws one at a time, apply low strength thread locking compound and tighten each to 25 inch pounds.
Remount the rings/scope to the bases tightening till snug but not overly tight and sight-in the rifle.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

I have a WO IBIS 80 APO Spotting Scope. How do use it with other 1 1/4" eyepieces? The packaged zoom eyepiece seems to have a threaded attachment to the scope.

sounds like it was designed to use only the eyepiece that came with it. here is an idea...mount the scope on a tripod with no eyepiece in take an 1 1/4" eyepice and place against the scope where you would put the eyepiece ..try to focus..if you cant, then slowly bring the eyepiece away from the scope till you see a sharp sure a machine shop can make a sleeve to screw into your scope and hold 1 1/4" at that point.any questions i can answer call me 5088331232

Yukon yd-100 lens removal for camera fitting seems like thred is broken

When you say lens, did you unscrew the eye piece or the actual lense? because the eyepiece is meant to fit your adaptor for 35mm cameras etc. but the actual front lense should be tightly sealed and thread locked to make your glass (scope) waterproof to some extent and to protect the alignment of the other lenses within your scope. If it is possible your local camera shop may have the ability to re-align and seal your scope, but if not do you have a warranty? and if not even that, if i were you i would align and accraglass your piece back together, it's a last ditch solution that should last for years.
