I have asked Bell & covill if it can be recalibrated somehow.
For now the Sat Nav is in use though at 2000 rpm
20 is in second
30 is in Third
40 in 4th
50 in 5th
70 in 6th

60 is 2.5k in 5th
Based upon the sat nav & your spreadsheet.

Unfortunately I have very little info on it as it was MR11MOG's reject that he didn't like, I'll do you a photo later

Don't need a head up speed display with swmbo in the passenger seat. Armed with the speedo in front of her nose, a seemingly built in GPS and the greatest vigilance of speed limits, I get constant audible feedback of my speed and limit transgressions. I just need to master the volume control innocent

Richard, you could add some steps of the speed display calibration so she get „better“ numbers to see... for example 50 mph instead of 58 mph.

Hi John,

Having struggled with the speedo, I tried to use a combo of the revs and gear to gauge my speed. I had come to a similar conclusion for 2K RPM and the speeds B&C have suggested for 2nd to 5th.

I did purchase a Sat Nav with speed indicator, I am not sure that is overly accurate either.

Regards

Steve

I have one of these - very nearly the same model. On a journey down the Fosse Way a few years ago, she had laryngitis and couldn’t do much more than whisper. Our journey time was reduced by 30 minutes.
