The speedometer in my 87 YJ wasn't working, so I began to investigate. The cable seemed fine--could turn it and get the speedometer to register. So, I pulled the speedometer gear and I think I found the problem. As you can see in the pic, it's all torn up. I went online to order a new one, and none of the pics for new gears look at all like this one. Does this look like the right one to any of you?
I'm thinking, maybe a previous owner replaced the original gear with one that didn't fit right and that's why it got all mangled. I don't know for sure. So should I order one online that says its for an 87 YJ, or should I try to find another one like the one I pulled? This is off a 5 sp. BA 10/5 transmission. Does the automatic transmission look different?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
