Also when I removed the gear from my stock adapter it snapped off, hence the question. Thanks
Yes, when you install it, you will see a series of numbers marked on the retainer you bought off ebay. You will also see a raised bump on the transfer case. You rotate the gear assembly so that the series of numbers closest to your gear size is beside the raised bump on the transfer case. The gear rides on the output shaft in the TC. That is essentially how you install the speedo gear. Then tighten down the fork to hold it in place. The fork will ride in two of the small cutouts on the gear assembly.
NOTE* - when you are turning the gear assembly, turn it gently until it is snug.
