Hey guys n girls,

I' trying to get a road worthy on my EL Fairmont Ghia and one of the small X's was the speedo gear was weaping a little bit of oil. Do I need to replace it altogether or could i just remove it, clean it up a bit and put a bit of grease around it? Also, as I've never done one, where am I actually looking for it? I have a workshop manual but murphy's law I can't find it anywhere. Anyone got a piccy under neath that can point to it?

Thanks

Josh

i just had mine changed. it is on top of the box at the rear. there is a (10mm i think) bolt that screws in from the top to hold it in. i took mine to a gearbox place to remove as it is almost impossible to get to unless you have a hoist or pit. they changed it in about 10 mins.

i had the one i wanted to change from my old box so all i payed was for their time and hoist, so it only cost $30.00. you would probably find most guy would do it for you for next to nothing. :o

Almost impossible, but not. I swapped a whole gearbox in my EL, with it up on axle stands. Then had to change the speedo gear afterwards as it was wrong and my spare gear order was delayed..

You'll be working blind as you can't really see it. But because it has wiring going to it, you can follow the wires to find it. As mentioned a 10mm bolt to undo. They have a o-ring seal, so it may be broken/worn.

^^^^^ That pretty much sums it up. Follow the red conduit and you'll find it. The driven gear will pull off, just carefully remove the old o ring (just in case you need to compare to the new one).
Smear some transmission oil on the new one before putting it on, and also before sliding it back into the G/box.

Sometimes you will find the oil is coming from the transducer itself not the seal. the oil comes out between the case and the end as they are just pressed together, so you might have to replace the transducer itself. :lol:
