The Part List indicates B7C-17285-A - 6T for the Mk I with a 15T
C3OA-17271-A gear on the speedo cable which turns a 980 revs / mile
I have no Ford part # for the Mk II - the cable gear is listed as 17T which
leds me to believe the tail shaft gear is a 7T gear and I believe the Mk II
has a 1020 revs/ mile speedometer.
What we really need is someone to document exactly what is used in the Mk I
and Mk II Transmission with pictures.
I know the Alpine has other revs/ mile speedometers but I'm not sure if the
Tiger has any others.
