I just picked up an un-restored 1966 Tiger last Saturday (B382000704). The 
previous owner had informed me that since an engine re-build in 1989 the 
speedometer has registered 10 MPH high and the tachometer has registered 
about 1000 RPM's high.    According to him, both of these instruments are 
original and have not been serviced. From all outward appearances, there are 
no obvious problems; needle oscillation, noises, etc.  The clutch was 
re-built when the engine was done,but there was no work done on the 
The car has not been driven very much in the last 10/11 years; 6000 miles 
since the engine re-build in 1989.  I suspect that these problems could be 
due to the fact that the car has not been used much, however,  I have not had 
the opportunity to get it on the road as I am still in the process of 
registering the car.

I would appreciate any comments as to where I should begin to look for 
resolution to  these problems.  

Thanks,   Hal Jean
