I went to the auto parts store today and looked at a brand new one from them. The spindle is centered just like on mine. I think im going to try a new gear to see if that helps.

Thanks again for all your help

So still working to figure this issue out, but while browsing quadratech today, i noticed something. They sell a "long shaft" speedo gear for the cable driven speedos. I am not sure if the transfer case i have is the original or not, but is it possible that it was set up for a cable drive and that is why its not working?

Transfer case is the same regardless of cable or electronic speedometer cable. You said that the drill test worked, that leads me to believe that either your gear isn't clocked right or your drive(n) (can never remember which is which) on the output shaft is broken. Did you look at the output shaft through the mounting hole for the VSS and look at the gear there?

My vote is it isn't clocked right if the drill trick worked. How do the teeth on the output shaft feel in there?

I have turned the VSS all directions and still didnt work. I was able to feel teeth on the output shaft. If there is no difference between cable and electric, why is there different parts? Quadratec calls out a longer one for cable driven.

Jeeps from 1955-1992 used a speedo drive gear with a longer shaft design, and 1993-newer models use a shorter shaft design.

Although the speedo drive shaft design changed, the transfer case housing did not change.

I retract my statement regarding the longer one. After looking at the post Max, i will take everything back apart and measure. I can tell the transfer case has been taken apart at some point. I will also try to get a picture of the output shaft for you guys to look at.

Well that worked, All i had to do was clock it right and it works now. I never saw the marks on it, so when i tried to clock it before, i just rotated it 180*. It needed to be rotated about 10 more *.

Thanks for all your guys help
