6 Cylinder Smiths Rev-counter

Recommended Posts

I've got a 6 cylinder rev-counter that ideally should show the revs for a 4 cylinder. Is it just a matter of getting a replacement dial to make it read 4 cylinder revs, and if so - who sells them? or does it need something more technical to be done?

 

Cheers

I think it needs recalibrating internally.

 

If it is a dolomite clock or similar (100mm) get it on ebay and buy a 4 cylinder version . They go all the time for about a tenner. You should get more for your 6 cylinder version. I hunted for ages to get my 6 cyl version as they were only fitted to fewr car types. 4 cylinder versions are everywhere.

Thanks for the tip. Have just checked out e-Bay and was surprised to see a selection of possibles. Don't know whether mine is cable or electrically operated until I get home. Certainly seems a cheaper alternative than buying a new dial or getting it re-calibrated.
