Re: How did that happen?

If I recall correctly, the spedometer drive gear is held in position on the output shaft by a springy-clip-thingy.

Re: Help with a Dilemma

I installed a third set in the back of my 68 and regularly squeezed three of our kids back there. Just use the existing inboard two bolts for the other two sets of belts.

Unless you're going to recover the rear seat to match the color/style/stitching of the new fronts, I think your wife is probably right.
