How do you fix the speedometer in a 62 Chevy II that displays really high speeds and makes a grinding noise behind the display?

Remove the speedo cable from the car, remove the cable from the casing, clean both really good, apply a litle bit of lithium grease, wipe the whole cable with it, assemble back into the casing, and put it back into the car. That should do the trick, and if not, then take the cluster over to a speedo repair shop so they can look at it.

An eggcrate display is a display technology that consists of a matrix of light bulbs, usually incandescent. Behind the matrix lies a foam backing with a series of indentations to accommodate the bulbs, which resembles the indentations in an eggcrate. Most eggcrate displays use a complete 5×7 matrix for each digit, permitting the display of nearly all alphanumeric characters. Some variants exist that can only display numbers, but require fewer bulbs. This type of eggcrate display is popularly used for sports scoreboards. Two types of eggcrate displays have been used on game shows because other types of displays, such as light-emitting diode seven-segment displays, were prone to being washed out by bright studio lights.

LCD displays use tiny liquid crystal shutters, one for each pixel that makes up the display. Behind the shutters is a light source that passes through the shutter when it is open. LCD displays have used a form of fluorescent lighting behind the shutters but increasingly, LEDs are being used as the light source. The display technology hasn't changed, just the light source. Note that these are different to true LED displays. These use LEDs to create the image directly and replace the liquid crystal shutters and the light source behind them. Although they are a very recent introduction in domestic televisions, this technology has been around in the large arena and stadium displays for many years.

The grinding dance was invented from "the bump" dance popularized in the 1970's. The Grinding dance is when a male dances behind a female and rubs his crotch on the ladies buttocks.

The speedometer is located on the instrument panel directly behind the steering wheel and is typically located in the center.
