Almost certainly it will need calibration. Compare the numbers on the speedo face with your original.

You should have 2 lights behind the 'waterfall' grille, one for high beam (usually red), the other to illuminate the ignition key (green).
From new, there was only one switch under the dash, for the ...

SNT 6211/12S is a MPH speedo from a Triumph/MG (claimed). Maybe the 13S designation is for the KPH version.

On a 4 stud, measure across opposite studs to get the PCD (pitch circle diameter).
