Replacing Speedo gear in a Dana 18??
Well i am rebuilding the transfercase and it is time to get my speedometer working. I havn't taken the case apart yet, but i would like to order the gear before. My question is what gear goes bad on the Dana 18? In the diagrams there is two gears. one that slides in te topof the case, and another that looks to be on the shaft. Which one is the culprit for wear. The speedo used to work at times. It would register until i shifted into third gear, then it would die. Also i run 33 inch tires and possible up to 34-35 inchers. Is there a different gear to compensate for the tires.
