Speedo has died


I have a 1991 Fourtrak 2.8 Independant TD, as I was driving along this morning I suddenly noticed the speedo had stopped working.

How difficult is this to fix? and how do I go about it. Presumably it is cable operated, could It be the cable has broken? or is it likely to be something more sinister?

First, does the odometer stil

First, does the odometer still work? If so, then its a speedometer problem. If not, then either drive unit, or cable problem. The instrument cluster comes off by removing the two rectangular cover plates from the top of the instrument cluster, and undoing the 4 10mm bolts. You also have to remove the dash panel from under the steering column (2 screws at bottom, 2 clips at top) then undoing the 2 or 3 screws securing the bottom of the cluster. The cable just pulls off the back, and the cluster can be removed by disconnecting the couple of wiring harnesses at the connectors. The bottom end of the cable is screwed into the transfer case, which is easy to undo. If, perchance, its the drive unit itself, then drop the front of the rear tailshaft, then the nut, washer, and yoke, then remove the alloy shaft housing that the cable fits into. There is a plastic gear in there which may have died. Its all a pretty easy job.

Have fun.
