Re: Aftermarket tachmoeter/rev counter

Only four years later... I have fitted a PFL Mk2 PI dash into my 1972 2000 - just in time for the RBRR. However the one on the dash doesn't work correctly. I believe it's due to me having the 123 electronic ignition fitted and my rev counter is the RVI type. Can anyone recommend a place to convert ...

Yes......

Warm the hose up in hot water.
This will soften it which allows it to slide easily into position.

Indeed there is.... https://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=175&aspect=80&diameter=14&wheelwidth=5.5&offset=22&width2=195&aspect2=60&wheel_size=15&wheel_width=6&offset2=22 (I tried doing a relevant co...

Either way, does anyone know offhand what the diameter for the top/bottom hoses on the 2500 are? The kit says it's suitable for 32-40mm diameter hoses which sounds about right. 32mm bore.

Re: Flywheel spigot bushing

Having just replaced the clutch and spigot bush on my 'S'.... The spigot bush was noticeably oval, so I decided to replace it. The original bush itself was quite a slack fit in the flywheel (as another one was in a spare flywheel I had). I ordered a replacement from Chris Witor, and that was quite ...
