I swear, looking at those odometer numbers wrong makes the paint come off!!
If you are determined to change things, I recommend having at least three sets so you might have a chance of getting one.

Hi everyone,   I would like to rebuild, and reset an odometer for my 
estored '61 Monza.  I have a unit out of a '64 that I plan to use.   Any 
ech references, or advise would be greatly appreciated please.     Cheers

mitty Says;  Eric if you can bring yourself to use the unit "as is" and 
ust give it a clean up and a lube job, I would strongly recommend that. 
ny time you go into a speedo and start swapping parts you run a very real 
isk of needing to take/send it to a shop to be recalibrated.
econd ( and just about as important) the numbers on the wheels were applied 
ith no primer at all.  The paint is just laying there.  It is so fragile 
ou can probably blow them off with your mouth.  The slightest touch and you 
ill flake the paint.  Sure, you can re-index the numbers if you are 
areful, but is it worth it?  Nobody is going to believe anything a Corvair 
dometer says anyway.
