Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.

Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

Many thanks

  • Wanted: EFi late model short speedo cable or early PG1 speedo gear

    Hi All!

    On my father's MG Maestro EFi is the short speedo cable broken that connects gearbox to the box for the speed signals to the ECU. We have a later gearbox fitted, where the cable is screwed onto the speedo drive. Either that or the older style speedo drive from a PG1 gearbox, where the cable is fitted using a splinth...

    Anyone able to send me one of the above?

    Kind regards,

    Was 3-4 years ago now but my local motor factors had one in when my gearbox was changed, it was frayed.

      Local car spare shops here in Germany would struggle to find anything apart from a spark plug for the Maestro...

      Problem is: The car is fitted with the later type of speedo drive (swapped drive train not long ago). The cable broke now.

      From the older gearbox I do have the cable in good condition, but the speedo drive does not budge from the gearbox housing. If I use any more force, I will only damage it...

      Easiest would be, if someone has the short speedo cable fitting the drive that is currently on the engine, as removing the drive is a bit tricky (if it will move at all).

      For illustration, see the rimmers' web site here
      Left on the illustration is the older type, right the more modern one.

          might be worth asking , I think this one might be different but might be worth asking the seller if he has any different ones?
