the gear is just under the plug, right? it shouldn't be hard to look at.

as far as which gear, google and a diagram will show up showing which gears for what combo. its color coded for easy use

Scroll down the Quadratec page. They have the older gears chart.

Going back to the Quadratec chart: I've got 3.07's on 33's and there isn't a listed speedo gear. What now?

Notice that as the tire size goes up one inch the tooth count goes down.


3.07 and 33" should have a 25 tooth gear.

math, it makes cents!

I got the same for the moment. A 26 tooth gear is the smallest I could find. This is what I bought. I talked to the guy that owns the place. Very helpful and gave me exactly what I needed.

It is installed and runs perfectly. He did say it may require you to trim 1/8" of the end off the cable if it is a mechanical speedo. I did not have to.
