Speedo

Hi

I have a smiths speedo is it just the one big cable goes to the back of it or is the spade on the back needed to ground?

Is that the ground for when the backlight bulb is fitted into that hole?

I'd agree, it just looks like an earth tab for if you're using a backlight and the clock isn't mounted into something conductive (say a plastic/grp dashboard). Not essential for it functioning as a speedo.

      Hello
      It might be a long shot but I am after a manifold for my Robin Hood which has a 2.0l Pinto.  At the moment I have an original Sierra manifold but I would prefer one of the Robin Hood Engineering ones.  Has anyone got one that they don't want anymore?
       
      Thanks

      Hello
       
      I am looking for some advice please. I have a Robin Hood that is based on a 1988 Ford Sierra.  It is running a 2.0l OHC Pinto with an ESC II module. I was thinking about replacing the standard ignition system with electronic ignition.  I was looking at Accuspark but I am a bit unclear as to what to go for.
      The current system seems to have a ballast coil that takes it feed from the ESC module. The Bosch distributor hasn't got a vacuum advance and takes it feeds from the coil and ESC module which has got a vacuum feed from the manifold.
      Is it better to replace the current ballast coil with a standard coil and give it a feed directly from the ignition rather than the ESC?
      By replacing the points with either a conversion kit or electronic distributor how will it get a feed for the advance if the signal is no longer coming from the ESC?
      I have contacted Accuspark and they just advised their distributors are stand alone and can use either a ballast or standard coil.

      Hi guys
      New owner and complete a mature here  any help and recommendations welcome. I’ve got a 2l Pinto engine which I have records saying it was built in 1975 for a Cortina. The starter motor is very lazy. I bought a new bosh style one off eBay but it is just spinning so believe it is a bad fit. The one that’s come off the car is a Lucas 25345a. Could someone please recommend a new, more efficient replacement?
       
      thanks
