    Jay,

    I'm having the same issue with my 1997 LX. It has a 95 Gauge pack in it with custom gauge faces, and the odometer gears are fine, etc. but doesn't work either.

    I was told by the "stealership" that I should try and put another gauge cluster in the car. I am planning on trying that this weekend to see if it is that. If not, I'm also looking for someone that can and will do the repair.

    Please keep me informed.

    -Josh

    Here's a picture of the way the gears are supposed to go. Like i said in my email i put one in upside down and it didn't work then i flipped it and it was fine.

    speedo

    My speedometer reads about 8 kilometers/hr. faster than it should. should I change up the gear in there to a bigger one? - just wondering.

    if your speedo is reading fast, Go to the Ford Performance catalog. There is a calibration calculation on the page with the speedometer gears. It asks for tire size, Transmission output shaft teeth number, etc.

    The speedometer gear does have some to do with the Odometer not working like stated in this thread, but usually it is the gears that were posted in Tin-Knocker's posting.

    Still haven't had a chance to swap out the cluster to see if it makes a difference or not.

    I'll let you know.
