    You can try (I tried - no luck), but I highly doubt it. Another option is to check on Ebay.

    I looked all over as well and ended up going with odometergears.com.

    Did the install this weekend - took 30 mins start to finish. Easiest fix ever... for once! :D

    Here's what I pulled out of mine...

    Damn I wish I'd found this a year ago! I didn't know they made replacement gears. Ford said I had to buy a whole new assembly. I wound up using JB Weld & a Dremel to replace the missing teeth :(

    BTW, how much are they? I may buy the one you have left.

    As of today they are $25 from the same site I got mine. Unfortunately I needed to use the 2nd one in my truck after 170000 miles.

    It controls the odometer and tripmeter only.

    Jinx, I hadn't seen this thread until Paul linked to it on another thread. You did an outstanding job - rivaling just about any install article I've seen for a similar R/R. Fabulous pics and captions. :nice:

    Nice pictures and everything but you did way too much work. you do not have to take off the front piece and move any of the needles. Did you do white face gauges at the same time or something and just not add those pics?

    Thanks :nice:

    not sure what you mean by "the front piece", but I didn't move or remove any of the needles. I only took pics of their positions cause I didn't realise at the time that the needles will reset themselves (as long as you don't pull them off their post.) As for white face gauges, none were put on, but I'm sure this writeup would help with that too. :D

    Just be very easy on it. It's kinda like a prescription medicine bottle (push down & turn). You may have to gently pry a small flatblade screw driver between the Blue plastic tab and the silver motor housing.

    Jinx,

    Mucho props on the fine writeup.
    I did the install this weekend with the laptop and your pics right beside me the whole time.
    Only thing I'll point out is that I was not able to get the headlight knob off by pulling that little keeper towards me. I struggled and struggled and finally managed to get it off (pretty easily) by pushing it toward the dash.
    Just a little personal input.
    Now I'll try it on car number 2 here as soon as I order another one!
    Thanks alot.

    Joe

    Thanks for the input Joe :nice: . Perhaps Ford used 2 different styles of clips during production?? Some push like yours, some push like mine :shrug: Who knows, it's Ford we're talkin' about

    Yes, but it's probably better if you use a grease that has a higher resitance to heat but still safe for plastics. The gears won't get hot but the inside temp of the car will duriing the summer and I'm not sure how well vaseline will hold up.
