New speedometer w/ correct miles

Someone on the list recently said they were reluctant
to change speedo because they wanted to keep original
miles. I also want to keep my original 7k miles but
replace with shiny new Gordon's. All you need to do is
hook it up to an electric drill. I'm using a bit I
have that is part of a kit with various screw driver
heads, but an alan wrench would work if you broke the
end off. Just find the right hexagon bit that will fit
in back of speedo just like the speedo cable in the
car, put in the drill, set drill to reverse and lock
it at high speed and watch the miles accumulate. It'll
take days but it will work. Mine's turning at about 45
MPH and put 400 miles on over night.
My issue is the clock- background is cracked like the
speedo but there are no new ones. Has anyone found a
way to repair these or found some other vehicle with
same size?

I took one of my vehicles to a local Speedometer shop for a new replacement. They were able to set the new speedo to the original setting of the old one. It was very reasonable.
