I believe the odometer is always calibrated to read according to the
large numbers on the outer scale; in your case it should be Miles.
If you have measured miles posted on your freeways, you could easily
check it out.
Don't be so sure... My 1984 Dodge B250 Van had over 485,000 miles on it
when it was last parked... Many parts have been replaced over the
years, including the engine and tranny. But we *are* talking odometer
Yes...485K miles. It had 425K or so when Dad turned it over to me in
1993. He did indeed put over 45k per year on that van.
Chrysler must build one Hell of a 3/4 ton rear axle, because that thing
still works, with only a hint of noise/vibration at interstate speeds,
and none under 50mph.
