Standard Corvair Corsa speedometer repair?

In case the new cable doesn't cure all my ills, does anyone still repair them even if the odometer portion doesn't work I'd love the other part to work correctly. Of course, all of it working would be better but I'm a realist. Anyone?

Oh, I see that Clark's has a rebuilding service, so never mind. I will know whether I need it soon enough.

The Corsa speedometer used all metal drive gears for the odometers so after all these years the lube dries out and the gears wear out. Also the input bushing wears out making needle movement erratic.

I've fixed a few for fun, but I have to take them to a shop for magnetic calibration. A lot of work to do them right!

If done correctly, Clark's price is fair.
