1967 250 SE little problems

Hi, I finally bought a 1967 250 SE Coupe, It is in almost perfect conditions, but the odometer is not working (the speedometer works), any tips?.

´The other minos problems are:

Fog light don´t work

Parking lights either.

The fuel gauge is always moving, like dancing.

Any help???

Thanks

Miguel

Hey Miguel! Congrats on the car, that's a beautiful model...

The speedo is a common problem on those MBs. What happens is the pinion goes bad and doesn't turn the odometer.

Do you know how to fix it?? As I said, the speedo is OK, the Odometer is wrong.

People have gotten good results with putting Locktite in the pinion, but it involves taking the speedo apart. There are services that will refurbish our speedo for about $100, but the one's I know are in the US.
