  • Voltage stabilizer

    1. Is there an easy way to replace the voltage stabilizer on the back of my speedo? 71 TR6.
    2. Can I relocate it to the bottom of my dash?

    Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

    Lower the top.
    Pivot the seat forward, remove the nut & bolt on both forward hinges, lift out the seat.
    You will need a bright light for the next part.

    Now, it will be much easier to lie on your back to reach the back of the speedometer.

    Unscrew the speedometer cable, push it forward, out of the way.
    Unscrew the screw-nuts that secure each bracket (brackets will drop out) (there should be a ground wire with a round connecter on each) and your mph gauge is almost ready to push inwards to the cockpit.

    Tape the bulb wires with which goes where, carefully twist them out of their sockets & push the gauge towards the cockpit.
    Now you have the voltage stabilizer right in front of you.

    I would leave VS mounted exactly where you found it.
    This is really easy, after you do it 5 or so times.

      Very good description! But step 1 should be to disconnect the battery.

        Thanks guys. This is what I assumed. This is a dreadful design.

          They do make a solid state version of the stabilizer these days. Probably won’t need another

            Pulling the speedo out can be done by kneeling on the ground outside the car and reaching up under. It's a pain and your hands will be numb when you're done, but it can be done.

            In theory, you can put the voltage stabilizer anywhere you want. But +1 on getting a solid-state version (make sure you get the negative ground version) and leaving it where it is - it should be good forever.

              please do yourself a favor and get a 7810 voltage regulator.
