Default Re: 6.9 Speedos

I had my R100's speedo recalibrated (After a few tickets) at a shop in the service road on Maroondah Hwy just before you head down into Ringwood years ago and the guy mentioned to me that he could refurbish the face and tidy it up repaint the needles etc.

Half way through the job he called and suggested I add 50 or 60 Kph to the dial so I could better see the legal limit posts on the speedo through my steering wheel as this was a slight problem for me as well and I agreed. (The Tacho is dead center of the dash and the speedo was offset as per a track car where RPM is far more important than speed.

The end result of the cluster rebuild was great and the whole thing cost me a touch short of $350 a bit over 20 years ago.

My point is this, Any good instrument technician can do this job and there are a few in Melbourne as in other states.

Tony

Well here 'tis just in case anyone was curious... All the way from Hawaii!! Needs quite a bit of cleaning, but I'm very happy. Funny that Styria just posted a pic that was very similar!!! Now she's getting closer to the way she's meant to be.... Next I'll be removing the LPG system and using my parts cars as donors for modern EFI

Hi Mark, for whatever reason, I never seem to be able to open photos that are marked with a red cross. Thus, all I have seen so far is the other cluster incorporating oil, temp and fuel readings. Can someone put me wise ? Regards Styria

If there is a red cross it means either there is an inappropriate file extension on the picture - so it can't be opened by the programme you have; or there is nothing in the file to open.
The red cross means nothing will happen.
Regards,
Brian

Since we all can see the pics, the red cross means your connection either timed out or was not strong enough to download the pics and open them.

If all fails, reboot your computer

Internet Explorer does this a bit, I recently solved a host of issues for a local family by installing Firefox browser and migrating all their bookmarks etc over.

And since the upgrade their issues have vanished.

BTW thanks for sharing Mark!

I love the PSI Oil gauge and can relate to that far better than Oil Pressure in Bar.

I'm gunna enjoy cleaning it all up and putting it in its rightful place. Hopefully it'll all work! I might even add some red globes (or use glass paint) to make it even more interesting....
