I have a question regarding speedometer gears. I am currently running a 275/40/17 with 4.10 gears and an AOD transmission. According to the charts, I am in need of a 25.8 tooth gear to make my speedo read close to correctly.
I am hosed, as the shaft mounted gear inside my 1991 AOD is an 8 tooth gear. Can't change that without a complete rebuild or at least a total tear down. Apparently, the gear is machined into the input shaft.
All of the usual places carry up to a 23 tooth gear. Has anyone heard of a higher tooth count gear?
If I really need to, I could change out the rear gears to a 3.73 and be close. Those gears ask for a 23.5 tooth drive gear in the transmission. I guess that would be the closest, as I currently have 23 tooth.
Thanks for any help or ideas.
