    anyone know what the speedometer revolutions per mile would be on a 87 chevy truck speedometer? can't find it stamped on it anywhere. trying to verify I have the correct speedo gear setup in it. don't seem to have mile markers anywhere close either.

    A properly calibrated speedometer cable output should be putting out 1000 rotations per mile
