Spedo trouble shooting, help

So here's the deal i got a new spedo gear and put it in and it didn't work so i went under my jeep and saw that it was leaking badly and i broke the o-ring so i went and got an o-ring, problem was it was way too thick and it leaked just as bad but it worked so i pulled taht o-ring off and put blue rtv on it and it stoped working. Then the other day i went to the jeep dealer and got a genuine mopar $6 o-ring and it doesn't work any more even tightened down all they way with all the rtv scraped off. Any idea on how to get my spedo to work again?

Make sure it's clocked the right way. Different teeth gears need the housing put in a different way. Make any sense?

Re: Spedo trouble shooting, help

James is correct! the "fork" must be in the "cast in plastic" detents on the speedo gear housing. This fork will fit in it at 3 or 4 rotational locations. Look closely at the gear housing. On the side facing the rear (the only view that you can parctically view it you will see some numbers (29-32 34-38 just for example NOT ACTUAL NUMBERS THAT YOU MAY SEE) ...now just rotate the housing until the fort fits the detents and the numbers match the tooth gear you installed. That is if you installed a 30 tooth gear you would rotate the housing so that the numbers that you see are something like 28-32 (or whatever)...the fork will be fully seated in the detents.

I was going to send you here ..but it doesn't detail the rotation thingie
