hoping to get it done this weekend! :)

yeah, easy conversion... if you have the right tools should be a very quick swap over hoping you don't run into any problems.



Cheers

yeah, it's a half day job tops. Be sure you've got a strong mate, it's not a one person job.

Also don't forget to change your speedo sender to keep you and Mr. Plod away from each other.
