I'm not sure about 924s, maybe they're different, but here's where I bought my gear for my 951:

Why the mold? Do yours break that often, or do you see an untapped market for them? 944racing.com sells the gears. I think they resell them from another vendor in Tulsa who makes them. Maybe you can buy one and make a mold out of it. If you wanna do the production, I'll be sales.

I already built the tooling and sell the gears for the late model 944. Full injection molding setup and not done by hand.

nope, only the late 944's not the 924s with the early gauge cluster. Are you sure your gear is broken because most of the time on the early setup the gear just slips to the side a little or comes loose from the shaft. It can be repaired by sliding it back over to where it is ment to be and securing it.
Otherwise , you can try the www.odometergears.com shown above. I think they have the one for the early cars. Or KLA industries has them for sure.

Torico,

My gear is OK, but the odometer slips in and out of operation. It's not the shaft that spins the numbers. Is this something you know how to fix?

Jeff,

If the gear itself isn't broken, alot of times it will 'walk' on the shaft. Push it back into place and put a dab of super glue, or install a c-clip to hold it in place.

Also, there is a gear running horizontally by the input shaft that wears. This will also cause an intermittent operation as you describe.

Scott, I bought one of your gears only to find my problems were as you described. I fixed the first one, but the gear by the input shaft has me stumped. I have tried to tighten the shaft to no avail. I'm now thinking of a R&R from a speedo shop, or find a used unit. You guys don't make that other gear do you?

We don't make that one. I don't know of anyone who has it. It's really more of the problem with the early speedo's. Problem is, it's a real pain to get at to replace. It's not really an end user thing. We literally destroyed 3 speedos (don't worry, they were trash anyway) trying to figure out a way we could make that gear and have it easily replaced. It's not happening. Your best bet at this point is to either find a good used one or take yours to a speedo shop.........

Scott, thanks. Have you ever dealt with North Hollywood or Palo Alto Speedo shops?
