Ah, ok.  I certainly wouldn't buy any of their items at those prices anyway.  Nonetheless, thank you for the heads up.  Isn't it a shame that the worst ebay sellers have some of the best items?

He's one of the few listed in the name-and-shame thread.
Yes, he has great finds at times, but prices are often insane and the guy is a scorpion.

Hi,

correct - one more detail:
Its from an early 6.9, later 6.9 have the red line starting at 5300rpm.

And there are other speedos with 116-part-number...

Its from an early 6.9, later 6.9 have the red line starting at 5250rpm.

It's stamped July 1977 on the back, so not that early.
When was the switch over?

don't know exactly. Sometime in 1977.

VIN 3079 starts by 5000rpm
VIN 3859 starts by 5300rpm (sorry - not 5250, have corrected it above).

My late '76/early '77 6.9 is a euro, and has the lower rev limit. 

The changed rev limit might be linked to the change in piston design that occured during production.  One thing I can say, is my early car is FAST. 

'76 6.9 Euro, '78 6.9 AMG, '80 280SE, '74 350SE, '82 500SEL euro full hydro, '83 500SEL euro full hydro , '81 500SL
