I have a strip speedo from a 2000 sc that was a right off in the 70`s FKR 931L with just 2400 miles on it. Its rusty as hell where its sat in the garage for the last 25 years when I removed it. It may or may not work but you are welcome to it if you have no luck with the cable.
morning Rich. With the recent chat about seat belt testing would it be an idea to put a link to the testers manual somewhere as a sticky so everyone can look at the requirments , it would be up to date with current testing. anyway just a thought. keep up the good work you do. regards Nick

Wasn`t you who gave me a ticket on Blue Bell hill back in 1977 was it? Ha Ha!
I`m only up the road from you so hope to see you about in it.

I am in the process of changing my old leaking and corroded dion tube.
I have stripped down two spare grease filled tubes so as to pick out the one in best condition.
Now on pulling them apart one was fitted with the 2 felt seals (one either end) and with the metal retainer washer
In the past I have followed the WM and removed one rear elbow to remove the dion tube, but it crossed my mind that you may be able to remove it if you can compress it enough to get it past the the fixed studs in the elbow.
Has anyone tried it this way?
If so did you need to leave the weight on...
One of two things will happen. Relisted due to timewaster or it will be re registered again with a new V5
Whats the chance of it keeping the same reg it had before its time in Ireland?
I assume the new owner will be along here soon enough to introduce him/herself.
I hope that any new owner is...
