underpsi, i have not looked inside of one of the cable driven units but i would assume it is different. my 91 non ic has the new style so i am not sure where the cut off is... aren't the cable driven only 5 digit as well?
Ya it is only 5 digits, my truck just recently rolled over 00,000 miles lol

You will need:
One 10-011 - 16 tooth gear, currently $28, this is the larger gear
One 10-016 - 20 tooth gear, currently $32, this is the smaller gear
*both may not be broken but if you are gonna take it apart i reccomend just putting both in.
Another source for the gears is Odometer Gears Ltd, 757-593-3478, www.odometergears.com .

WIKI - explanation

Essentially, a WIKI is a special forum where individuals share their expertise by posting how to's, information, etc. Perhaps the most known wiki is the 'WIKIpedia" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page. It is a encyclopedia of many different topics.

Typically the information is useful, accurate and may provide a link to outside sources of the information. In the case of DTR, the members are a very credible source of information.

I read Jack Thorpe's initiation of the WIKI for DTR over the weekend. iker42 has consented to donate time to take the articles we have in the sticky and format them for the WIKI. This Wiki then becomes a great resource to our community and hopefully the information becomes more accessible to a wider audience.

I have some experience using WIKI's at work (I design clinical software) and I hope to have some time later this month (if the need still exists) to donate to reformat some of the articles that have been written by the knowledgable members of this forum. Got to get done with the home remodel and paint first.

Hope that explains some of the intents of the WIKI in general...

OK, now what? the gears were OK, still no speedo/odo

Nice writeup, very very helpful, wish there were more like it.

And then when it turns out that my gears are OK, and the speedo/odo still do not go, what next? The micro motor turns freely by hand, and my though is that I need to supply a test current to the motor to test it and the wiring--but what kind of signal does it want to see? Does the signal generator at the transmission put out AC or DC or pulse?

The cruise control is working OK (and the wiring diagram shows but a single conductor leading out of the transmission to the cruise control and speedo, as best I can decipher it).

Warning for other gear-inspectors/replacers: if you buy the gears FIRST and then discover the originals are intact, you'll have only some very expensive trophies and still no speedo/odo.

AND klutzes take notice: when you're unscrewing those little phillips on the back-side plastic casing, if you fumble-finger the screw and DROP IT INTO THE MECHANISM, it can be hell trying to find it again--because the powerful magnet inside the open speedo hub can grab the screw and hide it under the magnet inside the whole thing. I ended up having to take the speedo itself apart to look under the magnet for the screw. (But it wasn't there, and I never did find it in the rug under my desk or anywhere else!)

Great article,

FYI- I took mine apart and it had a tooth missing on the small gear. Reassembled and Odometer didn't work. Removed it again and this time took the motor rotor/armature out blew everything out thinking the old tooth might be locking the motor. Reassemble and try extra hard to put it on straight- double check to make sure things turn.

Works great now.
