Hello, very interesting post. I´m glad that my speedometer coded 590AD K4 is being used to ilustrate this post.

Thank you very much

Jon:

The fifth rib has been found on:
N2
M9
L11
L6
K7

The K4 (April 1942) in Navarre's photo only has FOUR ribs. I also have one like that with FOUR ribs that also has a K4 date code on it....this might indicate that between April and July 1942 the case design was changed.

FYI = Case length seems to be the same as an N2 SW.

Jon, as you are doing updates, is there a way to make the page fit the screen width? Less scrolling right and left when reading. Just a thought…. :wink:

Get rid of that Apple junk and get a PC. I don't have any problems with width.
