Swapping a instruments luster in my Fiero. Question is, can I roll the odometer to match my old one?

You can't roll it backwards. The odometer has a tamper device that will activate when you attempt to roll it backwards. In between the numbers white lines will appear on the roll dials for odometers that have been rolled in reverse. You can roll it forward. Obviously that can take time as you'll have to roll it to match the other.

Just swap out the odometer. If you have the clusters apart to swap anyways you'll be able to reach the odometer assembly, remove it from the speedo assembly, and swap 'em over. That'd be the quickest thing to do.

Sounds like a plan. Mine would be rolling forward though. Wanna keep it at my 290,000 miles

I swapped my speedometer and wanted to keep my odometer for the same reason...took pride in the 250k+ miles that were on it. Was very easy to swap the odometer from one speedo to the other. With the speedometer out, you will see a small metal clip that holds the odometer in place. Remove the clip and lift out the odometer. Be careful not to turn the numbers. Also, resist the urge to clean the numbers. They damage very easily.

Ive rolled back a few befor,didnt have any problems with white lines. I agree, resist the urge to clean it (wash & dry your hands first,to remove any grease from your fingers. Takes a little practice to figure out how to roll things,but yes you can have a pre set mileage.If the plastic clip in the back falls apart, you can make a new one,with an exacto knife and plastic packageing.
