Ratio adapter

Postby Jelmer » Wed Feb 14, 2018 12:59 am

Our 93 didn't come with a ratio adapter on it when we got it so the speedo is way off.
We ordered a ratio adapter from the Transmission centre but it doesn't fit because the crossmember is in the way.

This is how it looks:


But I think it should look like this one:


Can I turn one of the lids on the ratio adapter so that it is an offset piece and will it clear the crossmember like this?

I have never had one apart so can not say if there is a different orientation on the gearing inside if the top is switch positions. But worth a try since shipping on another piece is probably costly. ;)
