Correct odometer gear for 1984 USA model?

So, in another thread I noted someone else has the exact symptoms I do. Odometer is not working, speedo is. Sounds like the odometer gear is stripped and I can replace it.

Unfortunately, doing a search on Pelican for "944 Odometer Gear" gives me 17 choices. Anybody know which is the correct one for my vehicle? Nothing worse than pulling an instrument cluster and disabling the car only to find I have the wrong little plastic bit and now have to wait while I mail it back and then another is sent. Thanks!

My own experience is that the pinion gear for the odometer moves on the shaft and, in fact, does not need to be replaced, but just moved and secured to the shaft (think a drop of superglue).

Probably worth the trouble to take it apart and take a look before ordering. (You can always use the GPS on your phone for a speed reading, if you are worried about that.)

+1 what 944 Ecology said, definitely worth doing a physical check before ordering for two reasons, checking if the gear has moved on the shaft and counting the teeth on the gear if it is found to be worn.

Pelican has a good reference <here> on the gears for all models but even they advise to check before ordering.

OK - thank you. That's the kind of advice that's worth a ton - experience. I'll put a heater in the car and warm up all that 35 year old plastic before tackling it.
