  1. A 200mph drive in a Defender..... you'll need a strong drink after that! 😱
  2. One minor negative I've found with genuine brand 18v grinders is the safety brake. If you only do them up hand tight and have anything heavier than a slitting disc then the inertia can undo the nut when the brake comes on.
  3. I wonder what the transfer box innards would think of that? Would the higher than usual speed of the input cause the oil to perform differently?
  4. That's excellent work, a proper achievement 🙂 I think I'd knock up a few more panels whilst the dies are still rust free and you remember all the little tricks to get this to work!
  5. That doesn't sound right, either a manufacturing defect or someone has buggered about with it. The table from the 1963 Record catalogue agrees that it should open to about 8 inches.
  6. Mickey, pretty sure the uk is -0% +10%, so the speedo could read 33mph when doing 30mph but not read any less than 30 when doing 30. Sounds the same as where Flechner is. Flechner, if you get the checksum wrong all that will happen is the needle won't move, so you can have as many goes as you like. I'm sure one of the guys who worked out the algorithm will be along to help soon.
  7. Let me know how you get on with this. IIRC your speedo was in lovely condition.
  8. What's the idea of the expanding foam? Something to back up body filler?
  9. That is expected, the speedo only stores odd numbered miles. It's impossible to get an even number EDIT: I may have misinterpreted your exclamation marks as surprise at the odd number when they could be an exclamation of success
  10. As a side note, I'm surprised to see it is 9 years since we did this 😕
  11. Hi, Looking back through my emails I programmed up a KPH speedo for Ray in Australia with 0xB29A 0xB29A 0xB29A 0xB29A 0xB29B 0xB29B 0xB29B 0xB29B Which gave a reading of 317001, this follows MrKevs algorithm. I'm a little perplexed as to how you have had different results. Is it possible you've accidentally changed some of the other values in the serial eeprom? Does the needle still work when it's receiving an input? EDIT: There should be a dump of the serial eeprom from a KPH speed earlier on in this thread that you could use for reference. EDIT2:
  12. ... and you still haven't started on the wiring loom have you?
  13. Only just seen this topic, not on here as often nowadays. I'd be interested in one of these if you did get around to producing them.
