Speedo Cable for Herald Overdrive

Hi Pete,

 

Good idea.

 

I'm just about to fit a Spitfire 1500 Speedo so was trying to work out which cable to order. I remember having to buy a longer cable when doing the OD conversion but no hope of remembering which length. The Spit Speedo has a different connection on the back so hence the need for a different cable.

 

I know the speedo won't read correctly, but then again neither does the standard Herald one so it's just a matter of using the Sat-Nav to see which way and by how much it's out, or stumping up to have it re-calibrated.

Give canleys a call. They were very helpful when I needed an unusual cable.

 

Thanks Clive. I emailed them earlier, they suggested their Part No. V11, which was originally Part No.156316 and they say is 67" long, everywhere else it's listed around 56", maybe a variation between suppliers. I was putting an order together for Canley's anyway so shall try that one.

Just an update for anyone else considering fitting Spit 1500 gauges to their Herald. The cable Canleys suggested (Part #V11) is 67" and plenty long enough.

 

With a Std 4.11 diff and 165/70/13 tyres the gauge reads too high by just over 20%, will probably get it recalibrate at some point.
