I might point out a couple things before spending that kind of money. I distinctly noticed a lack of warrantee! I also noted the statement that he produces no finished product (he only sells gears).

It is also interesting that for better than half the price to do a repair professionally with proper calibration cleaning and lubrication, he is getting all the money with none of the risk.

We used to provide gears, but getting good results for extented periods requires more than one will get doing it the first time. We got into speedo repairs because we got tired of doing it over when we sent them out. For a few years we only changed the level of discomfort as we were doing them over ourselves. The proper cleaning, lubing and evaluation of wear is critical to getting the number set to work properly.

So Steve, what does it cost typically at your shop to repair the caved-in odometer numbers on a 190e speedo?

I tried http://www.w140seatheightadjustmentgears.com but there's no such website. I hope it's just a matter of time.

Now those gears we will sell. We have made the height adjustment and the layback gear. We also have made the E36 BMW seat back gear. I'm on the wrong computer to lay out a picture.

The speedos are my brothers thing but generally the mechanical speedos are about $75 and the electronic about $120.

Steve, do you have the pink nylon gear that goes in the case between the motor and seat track chassis?

Thanks,

I have a very good picture of the gear and I just remembered where it was on another forum. It looks llike a pink gear is in the picture. The white gear is the one we have in stock.
