Speedometer Keeps Spining

Asked by Jan 02, 2017 at 10:42 AM about the 1981 Nissan 280ZX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When driving my 1981 Datsun 280zx my
speedometer just starts spinning around in circles I
know it's the speedometer cable but not sure if it's
the upper or lower part of the cable.

If it just keeps spinning around the dial then it is not a cable but the speedometer head itself, usually a drum bushing has failed. So you can either send it out and have it repaired or find a used one from a wrecking yard.
