but who cares what an odo says if thats the case. y not just leave it at whatever it is and tell the new owner that the engine/trans/diff has only done 100kms.


amen. its just a number, i personally wouldnt change it for selling or new engine purposes, just for people upgrading clusters and wanting to match numbers...

Just keep your receipts, winding the clock back to 0 has a certain wank factor about it

i dont know if WA have yearly inspections or not, but if they do the transport mob will find out and think something suss is going on for sure


Nope no yearly inspections here, thats why there's still a whole lotta bombs on the road :? getting better though.

I cant remember who said it, but they installed another odometer hr/km's for the new parts reading and kept the original for the rest of the parts. Seems like a good idea rather then alter odo readings.

I am pretty sure that you can swap the clusters if yours is faulty, and there may be a difference in the odometer readings but you cannot alter the reading of a cluster.

Just my 2c
