Oh wow sorry to hear about that. To tell you the truth sticking with the mk3 clocks will be your best bet. But if you wanted to use the mk2 clocks you will need the converter. There is a resitistor trick but I am not a fan of it. Also you would need to wire up the vss in back of the clocks so the motor does not cut out in the upper rpms. So as you can see its not a plug and play thing. And you would need a g60 speedo cable.

I fitted the mk3 clocks because I used an early dizzy engine. It takes a little while to get them to sit right but take your time and they will look factory. Using the mk3 clocks will probably be more reliable in the long run too. It's simpler and less modifying etc to go wrong! Good luck :up:

Thanks guys if you recommend to use the mk 3
Clocks to avoid any play ups with the stock mk2 clocks I'll go that route
