Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't but it's a quick, cheap fix
(remember, we tight) It worked on a friends MGA last week too.
Unscrew the speedo cable a bit, not all the way out but about 1/2 way.
See if this helps. It worked for me on my A40, one of the Sprites, and
that MGA.
It does not work all the time, some of the replacement cables are made
too long.
