83 Aspy speedometer off

So I went out for a ride today and noticed that the speedometer is reading quite a bit off. It has been reading 2-3mph faster than my actual speed.

What are the games to swapping out the cams on my '83 Aspencade, for the cams from a 75? Is there anything that I need to do as far as ignition spark or anything like that?

The other wire on the 83 is for the Overdrive light which is in the 83's speedometer.

Both 80 and 83's Neutral switches provide a ground. Easy-peasy.
Thank you sir

From what I understand, you need another one.

I have one that I no longer need as I have unlinked the brakes on my 83.

Japanese-built Shindengen regulators, pretty much the best of the best. I would hold onto those.

Is this a shunt type like what I already have on my 80 and 83, or is it a MOSFET
