Hi,

our KZJ70 restoration project is taking shape and soon we will made the wedding of the KZJ70 chassis with the new GRJ71 body :))
The construction year of the KZJ70 is 1994.

The old mechanical speedometer dont't fits in the new GRJ7x dashboard (see pictures).

Is any out there, with an advice, if i could use a new GRJ71 speedometer and which type?
I guess, it's an electronic feed without a mechanical speedometer cable?

My backup way is to build a new housing for the old KZJ70 speedometer, but this is complex an time-consuming. Other things are also to do...

Thanks very much for a practical solution!

Yes, in fact that's the best practical solution and is simply not to beat ;)
But in our country there are TÜV testing rules and i get deep in trouble, if i should come to the auditor. The auditor additional will see the "E-Sign" (Federal Office for vehicles) for approved components.
In the case, i build an own, new block and i decide to flout of the rules, i will realize your proposal.
Thanks a lot :thumbup:
 
Hi fittus,

I was also thinking about putting a GRJ71 body to the KZJ70 chassis.
Does the body fit the chassis or did you have to modify ?

And, where can one find a new GRJ71 body and at what price ?

Thanks Iwan,
I'll look into that. But it will be quite a cost indeed.

Thinking about selling my KZJ70 :neutral:
