are you sure that the last is a number on some the last was a letter . the smallest speedex i have and i can't say for sure it's a S14 has a serial # 348H and my S17 serial # is AM240 . so since they only made about 1000 units of each model per year i would venture to guess that your # should read 578I/L , the later models had 4 digit model/serial but most of the early that i've seen are 3 digits and a letter before or after. I still can't find a place to accuratly find any model/serial info , it's like all the number info for them is top secret confidential for elpresidenty eyes only no one else in the whole world is allowed to know info for those few people that have it and if you don't too darn bad you aint gitten it without pay'n through the nose or begging on your knee's for a week and still end up with the wrong info in the end. I'm hoping to run into a gentleman at one of the local shows before the end of the season who carries a scrap of paper with all the year codes and frame numbers in his wallet I just might pay him for a copy of that scrap of paper then post the info here for all to see . :thumbs:

Yes, Speedex guru's are weird to work with and "talk" to on web and forums not too busy. There is this site that has most info on them and manuals to download, and history and a forum to ask questions. speedextractorinformation.org Note the org part. Check them out on models and features of each and maybe download some manuals to compare. Manuals are not very big, mostly about six pages of parts blow-ups and front picture.
