    Changed ring and pinion and wheel and tires on my 64 Valiant 273 push button auto and need a 19 tooth speedometer drive gear. The original gear is a 17 tooth with markings D-17-T.

    According to my 64 parts book, an automatic trans 19 tooth gear is part number 2204358.

    Here is a reprint concerning speedometer gears from an article I wrote a few years back:

    For the 4 speed transmission and 3:23 rear, my parts book listed part number 2204360 for a gear with 21 teeth. After several failed attempts to locate an NOS or good used one via my usual internet and other source sites, I began to worry about finding one. (note: in 1966 Chrysler changed the speedometer gear to a different design and some of these gears are reproduced, but alas not 1965 and prior)



    Northwest Transmission Parts in Winchester, OH (937-442-2811) can cut new nylon gears to order. I gave them the application and factory part number and they said, “No problem, we can do it”. Northwest also had the o-ring and small seal that fits the inside the housing. Price for the gear, seal, o-ring and shipping was about $65.00.



    One glitch- Northwest reproduced a beautiful gear, unfortunately they reversed the gear angles. When I called to report the problem, they were very accommodating and ask me to return the gear and a new one would be cut. For good measure, I sent my old gear as a sample and a new correct gear was returned which fits prefect.

    Problem solved (note: allow 3-5 weeks to get a new gear cut)
