How did the rivets get into the quarterlight-to-windscreen seal of MGBs?

Can the speedo cable be replaced on a classic Mini without lifting the engine out?

Why did the USA get a "TR250" instead of a "TR5"?

Is it possible to open a beer bottle in the jackhole of a Sprite?

  1. You can replace the speedo cable in situ, it might even be possible without tools if it hasn't been tightened too much. You do need a very flexible wrist though and be prepared to get dirty. If it's too tight it is possible to get a pair of sliding pliers up in there and slacken the knurled nut before unscrewing the rest of the way by hand. The tricky bit is getting the new one in, as it has to be done by feel and a bit of patience. Good luck, it's not as bad as it seems.
