Hi Ben. If you are unsuccessful finding another speedo, I wonder if you could get the face of your present clock replaced. An instrument repairer/reconditioner should be able to help. The internals are the same.
Good luck, Lyn....

..apart from the fact that the milometer/trip would still be reading in miles?

or do they all do that?

they can also swap the leading odometer gear (actually they are not inclined just to sell a silk screened face from what I recall)

yes, a couple years ago Andy quoted me about 120 quids ex vat carriage to get a Smiths SN6144.24A calibrated to 3.77:1 diff and revamped to 6207/09 587.5 ... though I've not done it yet, and am still sort of looking for an S4 speedo in kph (NB: different from the 6153/102 587.5 that Ben35 is looking for)
