Yes, the 140 mph cluster I picked up at a swap meet this month needs this repair.

FINALLY!!!! The odometer gears are ready to go for MPH speedometers.

Installed one last night and it worked perfectly. Please give me feedback, good or bad. The idea is to fix the odometer correctly the first time and have it last the rest of the life of the car. Special thanks to Alan Hamilton who helped greatly with this project. It looks like an easy, simple piece of plastic but certainly took a while to figure out some things to make it work. We have a couple of clusters here so I will be working on an FAQ to show the process. We tried to make it simple and straight forward.

Your welcome. It's frustrating to not be able to fix your own car.

Bought two just to have for when the inevitable happens. Great service - they called me right after my order to confirm I wanted two sets, and sent them out right away. Amazing service. From one business owner to another - Kudo's for amazing customer service and a thank you for making your products in the USA.

Really? It's $35 man. Support a fine American owned and operated small business. Go to the page and read up on how many tens of thousands the man has spent on plastic injection molding equipment. He's selling this at half the price he should be IMO and even including the tools. I bought two and I don't even need one. Step up.

Yes really.
Since I have 4 cars that need a gear plus a toolbox full of taps and bits, why would I need 4bits and 4taps. ?
