Evan, I wrote a short on how to repair the emergency switch on forums. Search for it there.

Melloh, we were talking about the speedo conversion on roadfly. RD or NIc might know.

Thanks Matt. Hopefully its just a direct swap... but ill run some searches b4 bothering anyone. I also want to know if its possible to up the miles on the odo (its @ 150,xxx,xxx while my car is @ 170,xxx,xxx) to match mine.

I'm in LA now, doing research @ ucla. I dont know any roads conveniently under 1 hr away from here .

are you talking about a mech drive speedo? I imagine you are, but I thought you could adjust the reading by messing with the VDO box mounted above the drivers side control arm. I have one if you want to buy it.

Yo, Nic... thats the problem: I dont know what i'm talking about! I have the stock odo, and pulled the 120mph off of a 77-79. From the searches I ran, I didnt see anything about VDO boxes. I haven't had time to really dive into this mini-project, but when I do and have better questions to ask, I'll post 'em.
