pinion and bush for speedo drive Heavy 12/4 1934

Post by alan pepper » Sun Feb 03, 2019 10:26 am

I have lost the speedo drive pinion and bush from my 1934 Heavy 12/4 whilst repairing my speedometer. The easiest solution will be to buy them if anyone has spares. Failing that I need photographs, drawings and measurements so that I can accurately describe the parts to identify possible replacements or to have the parts manufactured,which is possible. The 1930's gear box is different from the earlier type,with the speedo drive at the rear end of the gear box, after the back bearing,near the prop shaft connection. I really am in need of these parts as the car is not road legal without the speedometer.Can anyone help Alan Pepper

does anyone know if it's anything like the Light 12/4? I have one from a '38 g/b if that's any use?

Hello Simon, I appreciate you looking for the pinion. The only description I have is the drawing in the Austin Parts book of the gearbox parts which shows only the pinion,not the bush. If yours is available, I am willing to buy it,or borrow it to measure the gear teeth,whatever it takes to find one or to make one. I am available on 01709 584547 or m_pepper@sky.com and I am willing to travel to find a pinion and bush to buy or copy Kind Regards, Alan Pepper
