Odo drive gear
... with the weather here in the SF Bay Area a bit moist I've returned
the urQ to virtually daily driver service [... yes I did get El Ni~no'ed
on the k1 the other night :]. The car is doing quite well as usual, but
there is the one annoyance ... the cracked odo drive gear will work for
a while when the car is cold, but that's it. I'll be doggoned if I'm
gonna pay a VDO repair place $60-90 to replace a $0.50 gear again!
I will ask the perennial question (which I've yet to have successfully
answered) with a twist ...
Does anyone know of a source for the odo drive gear for the speedo unit
in the '83 urq? Here's the twist ... it certainly appears that the odo
drive in the newer cars (e.g. '88 5k) are more robust ... I know the
speedo is electronically driven, but does it have a compatible drive
gear with the older speedo units?
