Hi,
Does anyone know the part number or what will fit?
I have a Hillman Super Minx MKIV 1725cc 1966 with overdrive, the speedometer fitted does not work but the car came with spares ( or so I thought) .
The speedo was erratic so we put in the speedo that came with it apparently from another super minx but of course did not inspect it as we thought most are the same, how wrong can I be, went for a little drive speedo goes clunk clunk, get back take it out and it has snapped the cable about an inch from the speedo so it must have been wrong shape end or something. on looking further the original one in the car went to 120 mph and is a Jaeger and the spare was a Smiths and only went to 100mph, I have tried searching for the part numbers so as I can get the correct speedometer and cable to match but also need to know is there a difference in the gearbox end as don't want to damage that end.
Any information gratefully received.
