  1. just to add to the confusion? evidently smiths instruments, sometime in the early seventies switches to metric threads,in their wisdom they kept the same part numbers. so you could get a mixture, in my case the speedo and rev counter are m4 threads, but all the small gauges are 3ba. clear as mud. so you had better check your nuts carefully?????
  2. i have just bought new aluminium thumb nuts for all my instruments on my car(1973 tr6) they fit on the speedo and rev counter but will not fit any of the small gauges. i have been told they are 3ba so that is what i ordered, so what is the thread on the small gauges? the studs are 4mm diameter. ian
  3. hi does anybody know where i can get some replacement clamp strips for the speedometer and rev counter for a tr6 they are the shaped strips that fit the threaded bar on the rear of the instruments. i require them (if possible) to be longer than standard
