Hi is anyone able to provide the length (dim X below) of the speedo cable for a Merlin 51.
The cable is driven off the front wheel.

Bill had a look in my Romac catalogue and it only goes back to the Merlin57 and that is rear driven,but have a measure if it is 25" i think i still have a couple of new/oldstock genuine smith's cables at that length,

I have now received My new speedo cable from "Vintage British Cables" in Canada
Part no DF1110/20 23" (Thanks to Vic for measuring his cable). Their service was first class and at C$30.00 + postage, I thought the price was reasonable.
The have a Web site www.vintagebritishcables.com and can be contacted by E Mail
sales@vintagebritishcables.com. They specialise in Smiths cables and repairs.
