Is my rev counter knackered?

My rev counter all of a sudden reads really high. I think it happened after what seemed like the engine momentarily died which is a little worrying it's self. When the ignition is turned on but engine not fired it reads about 4K rpm. The more things I turn on the lower it reads. Full beam on and it ...

I couldn't find any. It's reckoned that if that pin is worn then a new shift assembly is required. There maybe a problem in removing and replacing the pin while it's in the car.

Vague gear changes and stuck in gear fix

After adjusting my shifter linkages a couple of times and still having problems when changing between 2nd and 3rd I thought I'd do some remedial work.

Change oil inlet manifold

I have an interest in the Gordon keeble site where they have chassis numbers and either pictures or blanks. This helps build a picture of what's still around. Admittedly there's on,ly 100 gk's but it's great lure to the site.

Great, what type of owner are you? Some just want to keep what they have running, some want originality, some want performance or somewhere in between. It's one of the few cars that cover all above to extremes.
