MK3S speedometer verification
« on: 09 Oct 2006 at 03:02 »
My 1948 MK3S came with a few parts that didn't belong, eg the motor! (which I happily have rectified).
Can anyone tell me if my Smiths Chronometric 0-80mph speedo S.480/1/L (or is that I/L) is correct for my machine please? Is there a ratio that I should know about besides the 2:1 ratio of the rear wheel mounted offset drive?
many thanks
Peter

Peter,

Here's a post about the T35 speedo including photos which may be of some assistance.

The number of this instrument reads   SC 5301/30   1656. I have no idea whether it is OEM or an after market fitment.
