    hey does anyone know what speedo gears will work in a hydro B-series trans? I might be picking up a car this weekend and the kid has 205/45/17s on it which are a hair bigger than stock size so the speedo is off a little but the car looks really nice with that combo. Are there any other speedo gears I could use in the trans to compensate for the larger tires? Dunno if it matters but its a DC2 ITR diff in the car

    well since no one's givin you an answer, here's a bump and a question from me:

    you can do that? lol, sorry, i havnt popped open my tranny yet. dont know what goodies are inside. i was under the impression a sensor just monitored the number of revolutions the transaxles made. Are there any places (preferably websites) you know of where to get speedo gears?

    the speed sensor has a gear on the end which is driven by a gear mounted on the diff.

    I just dunno what other speedo gears can be used in a b-series trans

    although I got a minute to do the math and the speedo would only be off less than 3mph at 60 so I might not even worry about it
