    All I need now is a new Speedo as the current one is wrong, it’s reads too many MPH unless I really was doing 140 mph!!
    Does anyone know the correct ratio and a good supplier

    Cheers

    Your 61 5TA should have a chronometric type speedo that goes upto 80 MPH and not the later magnetic type that you have.
