Hello Tim,
Good to hear you enjoyed the Black Forest event as we did and had a safe 
journey home.
You are right, the the washer is fitted between the adapter and the gearbox 
and not not between the cable and the adapter. These "aftermarket" adapters 
are prone to fail.
Best wishes,
Josef Eckert

Hi Team

On the way back from the excellent Healey Event in the Black Forest the 
Speedometer on my BJ8 stopped working.


On my return I have verified that it is the Adapter that failed, not the 
cable or the Speedometer.


I have obtained a new Adapter from AH Spares and both at time of purchase 
and in the part fitting instructions I was told that it is vital that I fit 
the Washer that comes with it.


I assumed that I would find a washer with the old one and know exactly 
which end of the Adapter to fit it. But I did not. The fitting diagram that 
comes with the part is useless as it is back to front and very unclear.


>From the Workshop manual I believe that the Washer is fitted between the 
Adapter and the Gearbox, not between the Cable and the Adapter.


I shall be most grateful if your wisdom will confirm if I am right.


Many thanks
