Speedometer Gear Removal

On my last trip the speedometer quit working. I checked the inner cables, Calibration unit, Speedometer Gage and they were all good. Next I put a drive cable in the Drive Gear and checked it out. Something is stripped, hopefully the removable driven gear. NOW the Problem.. I've always seen them held in place with a small bolt, But it's different, it has no external locking tab/bolt. It appears to either be threaded or pressed into the housing. Anybody have any info or have dealt with one of these before?

You will get better results if you post info as to what vehicle you are referring to. Year and model, etc.

Opps! I know better. I was in the Ford F53 chassi Forum and forgot this post goes out to the general forums. The M/H is a 1988 Gulfstream HiRise on a Ford F53 Chassis with a 460 and C-6 transmission. The drive gear is in a very hard to get at location, but I'll try to get a picture of it today.

I do not think you have a Ford F53.
What you have is a 1988 John Deere Chassis W/460 V-8 Ford engine.
Then Gulf Stream built a home on it.

Here is what you are talking about:


The hex nut should unscrew and the cable should then come out with the driven gear.
The drive gear alignment is held in place on the shaft with a ball in the output shaft. The drive gear is also held in place on the shaft with a snap-ring.

You may have lost your ball if the drive gear melted.

Thanks! The things you can learn from just reading the Vehicle ID Plate. (Chassis. John Deer ).. Your pictures are correct, that's what I'm looking at. I had removed the inner cables for inspection and stuck a end into the driven unit to check it out. The spins in either direction and makes a ratcheting sound. I expected the driven gear to be a Nylon removable unit and the drive gear to be steel and on the transmission output shaft. This obviously is ass backyard, some disassembly required. Thanks Again for the Correct Information. I've had this M/H since 2003 and when I bought it from a local dealer, I was told it was a Ford chassis.

Here is a free shop service manual for your chassis:
http://www.cdr-roc.com/89JD/89-JD-Chassis-manual.pdf

It is a very large download. But it covers the engine, transmission and just about everything on the chassis except the home part.
