KPH gauges on MPH cluster ?

Hi there,

I'm thinking about doing the autostick mod in my 2001 Chrysler Concorde.
Because I live in Canada, gauges are in KPH and I would like to keep them this way.

However, I just cannot get my hands on a local cluster with KPH gauges, let alone one with autostick...

I was wondering if I could just swap the electronics and keep the face of the current cluster as is. It would leave me with KPH speed gauges, but I don't know if the ratio/alignment of the needles is the same...

Also, I would get KPH gauges but a MPH odometer.
Does anyone know if there is a jumper to change betweek KPH or MPH, or if a DRB III can change a cluster from MPH to KPH ?

Thank you

Not sure if these answers will help but let's see.

Do you have an OTIS or EVIC overhead? They both have an option for US/Metric change. Not sure if that only applies to the OTIS/EVIC or if it changes the Instrument cluster Odometer also. Guess I could check it in my Special and get back to you on that.

For the face swap.....What's the top dead center marking on the Speedometer labeled as in MPH. I believe your cluster has smaller markings on it for MPH. If it's 60 MPH then the face change should work.

I'll check on the US/Metric change in my own car here later today.

calibrated the same, but marked different.
mph markings on a metric one are the same as mph on an american market one.

us/metric will change displays that are digital(odo, mpg/kpl, temp, atc)
speedo doesn't change us/metric. canadian one is already both.
