Speedo not working.

Hi.
Thanks for your interest and replies. All three sensors I have do appear to have the gears intact as when I spin them by hand I can feel the resistance or the gear inside. I think it is time to call in the services of an auto electrician.

Regards
Richard.

Speedo not working.

Hi
Thanks for your replies.
The speedo drops to zero. The new sensor I got was not a genuine one . I have sourced a used original to try. If that does not work I think it must be a wiring issue.
I will keep plugging away

Regards,
Rchard

Hi all. As some of you are aware I have started to stockpile spares for my Puma. The other day I managed to pick up a almost mint heated windscreen for £15 I thought that was a bit of a bargain. Does any one have useful tips on how to remove the original bonding sealant from the screen? Regards, Ric...

Hi,
Is there any free site that is an alternative to photo bucket that can be used for posting photos on to Project Puma site. I have only ever used photo bucket for this site only, so the number of photos does not warrant a continuous monthly fee.
