Smith Spedo repair
« on: 25 Jul 2009 at 19:59 »
Hi there,

DO any of the UK or European members know of a SMITHS Spedo repair company out there.. My spedo currently does not work at all, the spedo cable rotates but no movement on the dial itself...


Regards

Alex

Alex,

I can endorse what has been said by Brian.  I have had several speedos refurbished by David Woods, and have found his work to be excellent.

Hi Alex.

You might consider having a go yourself! I found a most useful article reprinted from the magazine Motorcycle April 1992 on the following site

www.hells-confetti.com

A most unlikely name, it is in fact a site dedicated to the front wheel drive Alvis. Go to Technical data, Accessories, Jaeger instruments. It is pdf format worth having a look at.

Cheers Brian.
