    Question speedo gear replacement grinding

    2000 TJ w/ at and np231, sye,

    We replaced my stock speedo gear with a 38 tooth gear to bring the calibration closer to true. Today I started it and it immediately started to make a grinding noise.

    Is it possible the gear is too big? It was larger (diameter) than the stock one. It fit in the speed sensor just fine and went in the sye housing with a little tap.

    Well the speedo read 75 at 55 not sure how far off the lower speeds are so technically it was not broke but it is not right either

    hmmm i just replaced mine with what quaretec said was the right one but it was too small. threw my check engine light on and faulted out the engine speed sensor, luckily my freind had a odb2 code reader and was able to re set it without going to the stealership. i'm just gonna run the stock gear and hope for the best...

    It's grinding even without the sensor or gear in it? I tried changing gears and moving the transfer and it still grinds???

    could it be that the linkage is a little off? I'd check it all out for free pin fit and see if theres metal in the oil, worse case scenario you might have to split it and see if something came loose

    couldn't see anything in the sye reservoir, even stuck a magnet down in there and nothing on it.

    Has to be linkage or something.

    Figured it out!!! It was the oil pan skid of all things, apparently 8th degree skid was tweeked a little and caused the dust shield for the flywheel to push inward enough to contact the flywheel very loud grinding and
    S C A R Y sounding.
    I cut a couple washers n half and used them as shims, that solved the problem.
