S speedo and air filter assembly

Post by spoon.450 »

Just been contacted by a chap local to me who has nearly completed the restoration of a ‘66 1275 S. I haven’t seen the car and don’t know the chap but he’s after a correct speedo and air filter assembly if anyone can help. I’ll try and get some pics and more info about the car.
Thanks Dave

Hi Spoons, tell him to try JDO instruments (see recommended suppliers thread) for the speedo. If he takes them a good serviceable '66 speedo they've got something to work with - and it make it cheaper too! They will/can convert odometer part easily and possibly reconfigure the screen to 120 Mk1 spec. Knowledgeable blokes. They ain't the cheapest but......

What code number is he looking for? I have several 4417. However I am in the States. The last separate four digits are important also.

Willing to ship to England.

The 4417, (revolutions per mile) figure is simple to correct to suit what he needs. I''d say that your speedo is a GOOD starting point for JDO to convert. They'll have it done and dusted in a couple of days

Ooooops, sorry, misunderstood the 4417 figure re the older speedos, But calibration of an existing speedo to accurate speed and odometer miles is simple for JDO to do

4417 isn't the TPM - its part of the original Smith part number. The TPM is more likely to be 1280.

I've got an oval air filter assembly, complete with the correct wingnuts and new filters available if that's correct for his car.
Will try and find the photos later.

Good catch Peter. I should have been more specific. The numbers on the speedo are S/N 4417 18A 1280
According to Parnell book it is listed as for a Cooper 'S' with a 3.44:1 final drive
