The Button on the centre consol, inbetween the window switches, should be a lever & is for the Choke, though it does have a small button under it that eluminates the Fuel/choke light on the dash.

However, if you happen to have the S1 bond car, then it is used to spray cement from the rear number plate :hope:

Ref the Areal: some cars had a switch located to the side & at the bottom of the steering columb, this may have been removed if a newer stereo, that incorperated an auto areal up/down feature, has been fitted. Though mine has no evidence of ever having one fitted.

Sorry I can't help you with your speedo Q.

Are the bigger numbers on your speedo kph or mph? The odometer should read in the same units as the larger numbers.
