Hello:

I am bidding on a speedo, and the owner cannot confirm if its mechanical or electrical.

He will only have access to the unit on Monday and the bidding ends tomorrow.

I have the part number, can anyone check?

Thank you again

Part no. is: 1075420901

you know, its kinda hard to help you without knowing what vehicle you are working with... The 560 speedo part numbers all start with 011 or 012... and are electric. If I recall correctly, you are looking at a 1980? 380SL. North American Speedos start out with part number 009 and 010. Tried to look at european variants, and EPC locked up... I did see reference to speedo cable. A part number search on the 107 542 09 01 did not return any choices in the EPC.

I want to change the Speedo unit on a 560 SL 1987.

There is currently a speedo for sale on ebay with the part number I mentioned, but the owner cannot tell me if its electric or mechanical.

I don't believe the part number on the face of the speedo in your pics, is the part number of the unit. **As I wrote above, the part numbers start out with A0XX XXX XX XX.

I can say with relative certainity the 560 is electronic, but I cannot say what type the part you are bidding on is... Sorry. Need more info.

**Err... meant to write.

Sorry. Wish I could help. The number listed does not return a hit in the EPC when searched. I tried 009 542 09 01, 010 542 09 01, 011 542 09 01, and 012 542 09 01 also, and did not get any hits. I suspect the number provided is just the number for the faceplate, or is an internal number for VDO, and not the MB part number. Perhaps someone else with EPC experience and knowledge can find a better answer.

Given what I know, I can't say the advertised speedo will fit or be appropriate for your 560.

Rowdie (ie EPC user extraordinaire)... Can you offer any assistance to this bloke?
