Speedy cables

Post by peter freeman » Thu Jul 03, 2014 5:28 pm

I am surprised to find that they are not already recommended unless I have missed them on the list. I enquired about a part for my burnt out SE4A rev counter and they sent me the complete pcb and have not asked for any payment - you cannot get better service than that.

Refurbed my Sabre Six speedo earlier this year. Not cheap but they do a proper job.

I got my speedo gearing sorted a year or so ago and they did a good job, including polishing it up so it looked like new. My only issue was the time it took them - several weeks, and I had to kick up a bit of a fuss before they got themselves in gear (pardon the pun).

I thought they were quite efficient and cheap when I used them to convert the electronic drive in my GM box to work the Reliant cable driven speedo.
