I WAS TRYING TO GREASE THE DAMN SPEEDO CABLE AND WHEN I WAS REASSEMBLEING IT THE FREAKIN NEEDLE GOT CAUGHT ON SOMETHING AND SNAPPED OF(STUPID NEEDLE!).ANY IDEAS ON WHAT THE HELL I CAN DO NOW? THANKS JOEL:mad:
 
Go to the junkyard, get another cluster, and swap the needle out. I've R & I 'd (remove and installed) them before on other cars. Should just push on.
 
Unless you can locate another turbo regal, your best bet will be to find an 82? to 85 Riviera. Almost all of the standard Regals I have seen lack the trip odometer on their speedo..........that is not to say you cant just remove the needle, but incase you were going for the whole speedo head, go for the Riv unit....it is identical.

A local speedometer repair place, if you live in a larger town, should do it for very little.

Hmmm, I think Boston qualifies! :D Check the yellow pages. Who knows they may have a spare needle as well.
