    Needles sticking

    I've had my clocks out a few times n the last few months, trying different dials and needles. Ever since the last time though, the neeldes are sticking and are not moving smoothly.

    If i rev the engine when stationary, the tach needles moves around in bursts and when i'm driving it's the same with the speedo when i'm driving. However it seems as though the temp and fuel needles are fine.

    Has anyone experienced this before, or could anyone advise me please?

    Thanks in advance

    ah right. i had an idea that the needles were either too far down or not far down enough so the spindles were slipping inside. I'll sort it out when i et my new dials in 3 weeks
