Hi mate.
Needs a rev counter to replace the clock.
I managed to find mine in Germany but was expensive.
I have dug out those floor mats.
Cheers Mark.

The 340 is nothing like the 360 for unleaded. The early 1.4s had soft valve seats and a tendancy to burn even with leaded My B14.0 had soft seats, but you will probably have a later revision. I think the B14.4 was ok. Someone will know, or you can find it after a good search on here.

Bit of a polish job done for the first proper run out of the year. 600 odd miles done so far and no issues to report.
