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.

General and Repair information about Smiths speedometers - search for
Anthony Rhodes article - Repairing Jaeger & Smiths Speedometers Odometer
gears can be purchased @ OdometerGears.com

I believe the Tiger is 6 teeth. 7 is the other common size.
Other useful info is the Tiger speedo takes 980 revolutions to rack up 1
mile on the odometer. Its printed on the face of the speedo in a really
small font.
