What Speedometer Gear is Right For You?
Paul Cangialosi of 5Speeds.com stopped by the shop to help me rebuild the T5 transmission in my 1979 Ford Fairmont Project. During the build, we needed to work out what speedometer gear I should use. In this video Paul covers how to determine how many teeth are on a speedo gear, and what gear is right for your application.
So if you’re looking to figure out what speedometer gears you’re going to need for your next build, look no further.
