This week I acquired another odometer. The problem is that I just don’t know what I’ve got I have included some photos of the unit.
My Latest Odometer: What Is It?
The unit actually has two components. Looking at the above photo, on the left is the odometer itself, while the right component is a receiver of the radio timing signals. The white mark is a left-over sticky surface from tape or Velcro from long ago.
Close up of the Odometer Unit
The odometer is an electric odometer – it is not driven off a speedometer cable like the Halda units. Two lights, one for each odometer display are on the left side of the unit. Each odometer reading can be zeroed by the tiny push buttons below the “tens” figure on each odometer display. The upper toggle switch on the right side has a corroded on/off indicator. At this time, I have no idea what the other buttons/switches are for.
Close-up Of The Timing Signal Receiver
The radio timing signal unit is of no interest to me. While the radio signal unit case is bolted to the odometer, there is no electrical or mechanical linkage between the odometer and the signa unit.
A Rear View of the Unit
The “Left-Off-Right” switch on top of the unit does not appear to be wired to anything other than two small lights above the odometer. I’m not sure how the switch works.
Interesting…But What Is It?
If anyone can help me identify this unit then that would be a great help. The other thing is that I would like to get this odometer to work. Therefore I would appreciate any advice on how to make this odometer work.
