Plastic speedo drive gear for a 4.22 diff

PostPost by: JRUTH » Wed Feb 13, 2013 1:29 am

I have been searching around and cannot seem to locate a source / supplier the plastic drive gear that is used with a 4.22 geared diff
Just to be clear - this is the plastic gear asm that fits to the right angle drive asm. The gearbox is an original 1963 Elan S1 type.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a source or a gear in nice condition, please advise.

Thank you,
John

Salut John

Burton Power list some drive gears - have you asked them if they can source you one? Also Sue Miller sometimes has surprising parts.

Sometimes asking is enough for something to magically appear on eBay ;-)

Bonne chance.

Vernon

P.S. Or get your speedo recalibrated with what you have

Sue Miller confirmed they only have black gears - which are not for the 4.22 - I actually do not know what the proper color gear is - but will investigate further and post the details once known. I will researcg Burton to see if they can provide as well -

Best,
John
