Zetec/336 speedometer drive

Back to europa page

I got rid of the 336 angle drive and drive the speedometer directly from the gearbox. This is trivial to do given the speedometer is electronic and there are just a couple of wires to attach to the pickup. I made the alloy stand-off tall so the sender (which is rather wide) would clear the transmission end cover. The drive between the drive gear in the transmission and the sender is a simple piece of welding wire with ends hammered to make them square!

The steel brackets in the picture are the exaust mount. Drilled to add lightness as the bracket is much stronger than it needs to be.
