Hi Gary,

Do you need a full speedo or just the dial face?

If just the face, there is a printable one here

https://www.mgexp.com/article/kph-convert.html

I used this in my B. I had to try a few different print ratios to get it right. Out by about 10 km, at 190 kmh, but we are not allowed to go that fast. If you do use it, use a felt tipped pen to blacken the cut edges of the paper.

Alternatively, do what I do, in my Wolseley, which is to multiply the km speed, less the last digit, by 6, to give mph. Really quite simple, e.g. 70 kph becomes 7 X 6 = 42 mph. You will find that there are only a few speeds that occur, 40, 50, 60, 70, etc. For a speed like 35 kph, you do the same, 3 X 6 +3 (1/2 of 6) =21 mph.

No first hand knowledge but they do look great.

That would be fun to install on a US spec speedo (minus the KPH indication)
At 60mph you would be showing almost 100

This speedometer has a rate of 650. Means that it is for 14"wheels. MGA has 15" !!

Then, I'm not ALLOWED to buy it, because it says "All markets except Germany " moon
