Hello,
I would like to change the lights in my Stella speedo to LED. I know that the replacement bulb is 164634 but does anyone know what LED bulb to use?

So after a little bit of trial and error I found the bulbs for the Stella speedomoter. It had T5 bulbs for lights.

I ordered these:
WLJH 6x T5 LED Wedge Bulbs

and these:
Partsam 10PCS T5 17 37 73 74 79 Wedge Instrument Panel LED Light Gauge Cluster Bulbs

I also ordered this bulb for the always on low beam bulb:

All in all it really brightened up the speedo and made it really easy to see.

With these both being T5, what was the reason for purchasing both? Did you end up using both bulb types?

Yes. Both bulbs have a slightly different fit. The old rubber holdings are difficult to get a good fit.

The first bulbs shine in three directions, the second only shine on top. On my old rubber the three way shines were covered in the blinker signals.
