New to the forum, I have a question regarding the W/NG speedo gearbox. My bike did not have the gearbox, I have just purchased one that according to the seller is for W/NG and now I am having a discussion with them if it is the correct type. Looking from above at the output / cable connection point, should this rotate clockwise or anti clockwise? The one I got is anti clockwise.
I hope that the collective wisdom of the forum can help me out here.
Thanks for answers but my question was probably a bit unclear so let me rephrase it. I know that the gearbox shall be fitted to the front wheel hub, and in case of the W/NG on the right hand side so that is not a problem, what I need to know is if I have got the correct type as they, as far as I know, were made in different variants to fit left side or right side. I have found some documentation that claims the output should always be clockwise rotation regardless of which side of the wheel it is attached to. The gearbox I have got now will give anti clockwise rotation output if used on the right side but clockwise rotation if attached to left hand side (suggesting it might not be suitable for the W/NG)
The question boils down to if the Smiths chronometric speedometers require a specific rotation direction of the incoming drive wire or if they work regardless of clockwise or anti clockwise rotation.
I have the same anti clockwise gearbox fitted and figured out that my gearbox is for a Norton 16H. It is now not connected to the speedo as I took out the cable. So now there are two who are looking for the correct gearbox.....
