Default H1 odometer replacement

Does anyone know the procedure that Hummer would have followed to replace a broken odometer? I'm looking at an H1 that has had its odometer replacement sticker in the door jamb. Question is why was the new odometer not set to the actual mileage of the Hummer and set at zero. The sticker says it was replaced at 4xxxx miles and it currently has less miles on the odometer.

Mechanical odometers are typically a PITA to reset/adjust. The easy way out is to add the sticker documenting what the old odometer reading was when it was changed out. You need to add that number to whatever the new/current odometer is reading to get the actual total mileage.

Where have you been? What you described is 100% normal odometer replacement for a non-digital ticker.

Odometers are not to be tampered with, hence they do not fudge the replacement as its seal would be opened and the miles hacked by guys like Vic the pick..... etc.
