Final rive ratio

Post by Shindles » Sat Nov 10, 2018 6:58 pm

The handbook does not state the final drive ratio. I want to calibrate my speedo and rev counter.
Can anyone help?
How many mph per 1,000 revs in top?
This is for a standard Mk1 260cu-in

It states 23.8 MPH Per 1000 Revs In top gear in my Workshop Manual.

Presumably this is with 5.60 x 13 Cross-ply tyres.

The Tremec gearbox in my Tiger is about 40mph/1000 revs! in 5th. 2.88 diff. Great on motorways. 25+mpg

That will give very relaxed Cruising on the Motorway?

25 MPG is pretty cool too :)
