I appreciate but unfortunately that speedometer is a newer model and will not work for parts with the one I have, I have an older model 1960 with only 5 digit odometer.
Thanks

Mini Mania also has a bunch of wiring diagrams. It can be useful to have access to various years/models when an older mini has some newer mini features like an alternator, etc..

Quote from: PMF5150 on March 27, 2023, 11:17:50 AMThanks but the one I put in was brand new not much to it so thats why im thinking the center hole that the needle runs through might be a diff size causing the problem thanks Paul

I've run into this too Paul, I've had to grind a tiny bit off the sides of the end of the cable to get it to fit into the speedo. You have to use a grinder as it's too hard for a file.....there seems to be a mismatch between new speedos and the old cables....

The other thing you can do is visit a local speedo shop and see if they can fix you up with a new inner cable the right size - they can make them to length.

Old cars are just not plug and play, there's always a bit of fettling to do to get things to work.....

The blue "Haynes Manual for 1969 to 2001 (up to X registration)" edition would be a good place to start.  Attached is what should be the appropriate diagram and key from that manual covering your car.

Seth is planning to come, and I'm talking to a couple others.....we'll see. We lost John Styers last fall and I don't think his son (who now has the Mini) can get off work, but I'll contact him. Susan has moved to Florida and gotten married. I've mentioned it to a couple of local guys too....

Of our forum members, Bruce is unable to come, WillieB has a trip both before and after the event dates, so he doesn't know if he can squeeze it in or not.....others haven't chimed in yet.
