Ditto - your maths improved too! Just multiply Kmph by 6 and divide by 2.Roughly! Haven't had an MPH speedo on the Stratos replica for 15 years!
50kph=30mph, 70 = 40, 80 = 50, 100 = 60, simples!

120kph=80mph. 160kph=100mph. 200kph=120mph. Thats more like it!

Guy, bit of a typo there I think .... divide by 10 I am sure is what you meant.

I have not seen that conversion before. I think the 80kph is 50mph is the most accurate easy conversion, a factor of 0.625 against your factor of 0.6. However, yours is excellent for for ease and quickness and I will use it in future.

Given the lack of accuracy of the average mechanical speedo and 10% leeway in getting clocked by the Rozzers...then why worry!

+/- 20% seems fine by me!

There's a lot of this sort of stuff about now:

The issue with this one is battery life so maybe would be "for the inspection day" and/or for calibration.  If it was me I'd put some little stickers on the speedo.

Mine has a digital speedometer on top of the dash which transmits a bright green LCD readout onto a reflective sticker on the windscreen. I have it set to 1mph above actual speed and is an invaluable tool and much more precise than manufacturers speedos. It can be easily altered to kph too.

Actual conversion from mph to kph is multiply by 0.6214 or divide by 1.6093.

Paul, please may I stick with 0.6 please, I fear my ability to concentrate on the road may suffer if I use your figures.

Thanks Andy, need to wear my glasses so I can see what I'm typing and maybe take the welding gloves off too! You're right though, multiply by 6 and divide by 10!

Every wondered why manufacturers quote a 0-62mph time instead of 0 - 60? it's because 100Kph = 62 Mph!

I marked the speedo up in mph using stick on digits, but I've been swapping between mph and kph for thirty years now.
The blurb from the DVLC states that the speedo has to read in mph.

Yes, but unless the DVLA ask to see the vehicle they don't know! but it doesn't form part of the MOT .
With the digital speedos now available it's easy to get an accurate speedo, such as Paul has fitted to his Thesis.

I'm pleased to be able to report that my Lancia sailed through it's MOT this morning!

I just need to fill all the forms in then I can get my application for a UK reg to the DVLA.

Can anyone tell me where to find the engine number? The two chaps at the MOT station and myself looked for it on the block, but we were damned if we could find it!
(a photo of the location would be a great help!)

If you've a local Fiat Garage ask them as your engine is the same as the Punto 75 sx that was replaced in the UK in 1998 by the 1242cc 16v 85sx engine, it's also worth getting a copy of 'Porter Manuals' Fiat Punto Repair Manual & Service Guide, I bought my copy from a LC Motors of Newport South Wales who were Fiat/Alfa Dealers back in 1999, and who I used for servicing and Warranty work,  it's Fiat Approved, and the number is
ISBN 1-899238-27-1, this covers your engine as well as a lot of other parts; just be careful with mechanical items,  although they look the same they sometimes aren't, case in point is the rear wiper motor, at a glance it looks the same as the Y, but it is mounted the other way up and the arc of the wiper is something like 180 Degrees out, very useful if you want it to clean the number plate instead of the rear window! took me sometime to work out why it didn't fit the Y, I'd looked at the price of the Fiat Motor as opposed to the cost of the Lancia item which was nearly double, which would have been great if it had fitted!
It's a useful book to have as of course the Y & Punto were different sides of the same coin.

According to my copy it shows the 1.1 & 1.2 fire engine number as being on the left side of the engine as you look in from the front, I suspect it might be underneath the end of the exhaust manifold, there's no point in copying the sketch as it just shows an arrow in that general direction.

Roger, have you  found the engine number yet?

According to the owners handbook it is on a bracket at the end of the exhaust manifold above the oil filter. That is what I can make out from the photograph in the handbook, but I no longer have a car to check against !!

PS do you want an owners handbook?
