Hi again GraGra

The 0.5 watt ones will be fine. That just means that they can handle twice as much power. They will be slightly bigger than 0.25 watt ones, but this will be of no significance in ...

Hi GraGra

Sorry you are having trouble with your tacho.

Can you get hold of a 10k resistor to try? They only cost a few cents.

I can post you one if you can't easily source one.

Here is my understanding:

1000s have two different specification wheel boxes, so the angle specification of the gear wheel will depend on which boxes you have. I believe that there are ...

I'm with John on this one.
Its not just the capacity difference or cost of reconditioning. The 948 is a much better engine all round. I know that this might seem surprising given that it appears to ...

got the dial in the middle of the car gold face.

In that case it is almost certainly from an Oxford. Wouldn't your car be a '56 if it had an 803cc and a central speedo?

Unless I am very much mistaken, larger rolling radius tyres will make the speedo read lower, not higher than actual speed.

I confess that I was assuming you had the big central speedo in my earlier posts.

I assume that a 55 model would have the one in front of the steering wheel. If that is the case, I doubt you will ...

The 1000 figure is the one that tells you the TPM.

It is way too low for a 4.55 diff, which explains why it reads way too high.

You need one that is calibrated to around 1400 to 1500 TPM. I wil ...

The calibration--in turns per mile--is shown by a number that is in ...

The TPM figure is a number printed on the face of the speedo that states how many Turns Per Mile the speedo is calibrated for at the factory. Yours is probably 1408 which Minors were fitted wit ...

Is the body of the pump black plastic? If so, it might be the one designed and made in NZ. They cost about $90.

The ribcase gearbox takes a different throwout fork from the smoothcase -- is your new fork the correct type?
