Hello,
The odometer in my '85 300 DT has begun to fail. The speedo works fine, the miles just don't click off.
Any insight?
Thanks,
Mark

There is a gear that starts slipping on the shaft.
Sometimes by itself. But it will go bad if anyone resets the the trip odometer while the car is in motion.

Salvage yard odometers are cheap at pick and pulls.
Many people repair their own by ruffing the shaft the grear is on. Have not tried it my self. Would like to have a salvage yard special if something went wrong while trying to fix it.

There also some reputable shops that can repair them
advertising in "The Star".
