Well the DVLA have OK'd it for UK registration - have ordered an old black and silver plate - apparently I'm entitled!  :015:

Not much else to report. Took the speedo apart myself as repair quotes getting ridiculous. Can't find anything wrong with it, but now the challenge is to reassemble without losing some precious part.

Basically waiting for spring weather and the end of this effing lockdown!

Sounding brill, good luck with the speedo, fickle things. A chum had a prob with one, found PO had squirted lube in the mechanism that totalled it, something to do with magnetism :087:. Is yours the old mechanical cable operated type?

It is a Veglia magnetic type. Quite amazing piece of mechanical engineering, first time I've ever looked inside one! And yes, someone has greased the plastic gears  :112: 

I was toying with the idea of getting it converted to electronic, but now think I'll try keep it as it is - simple tech! Just have to find where the problem is.
