Re: [FWDLK] transmission



The gear is actually in the transmission at the end of the cable, not in the Speedo itself.  Follow the cable down and you will see when it screws into the transmission.  Unscrew the cable and the gear is behind the panel it's screwed into.  It will be fairly obvious how it's attached.  Then just swap them.  Can be done without spilling any tranny fluid if you are careful. Should take less than a half hour to swap.

Enjoy!

  Just curious --  how can you change the speedo-gear ?  The diameter would be different (larger) !!

Ok.
Read the tire size from the sidewall.
Then the rear end ratio.  This is normally stamped on a metal tag attached to the diff.
Now go here:

Pull up torqueflite.  All the transmissions are on the page.

The last one I bought was from mancini racing and they were not too expensive.

Good luck
Thanks!

To get the right speedometer gear we need the Gear ratio of the rear end and the tire diameter of the rear tires

Gears are easily available in several places
