    Not sure what a Australia 70 MGB had for a speedometer. Posting a pic might help get a response and not the wrong one sent to you. I hope this helps. Bob

    DSC04267 [Desktop Resolution].jpgThats a good idea Bob. Here is a pic. As you can see the left side is where I made the paint defect.
    If I have to buy a who new speedo does it make a differance that this is an overdrive model?

    You have a speedometer we never got in the USA. A true Canadian 68 would have had that one. I think many later English spec cars had the larger gauge with the 1280 TPM. The face should interchange with US spec speedometers but would have a 1040? on the lower right side of the face. If that does not bother you I can look around and see what I can come up with. Bob

    Thank you Bob. I dont really mind about the minor details. If you could find a face it would be very much apreciated.

    I have found a speedometer I can use for parts. If you were in the USA it would be easy to just send it to you. Not sure how much it will be to mail it. I can get a padded envelope to send it. PM your shipping info. Bob
