    ie can i stick all my vdo gears into a motometer speedo and have it read accurately?
    Nope....I'm running just the drive gear in my moto and it's worked so far..but the other gears won't fly.

      no, im talking swapping ALL the gears, drive, and then the five plastic ones, i would
      assume this works if the coils do the same rates. right?

        Never thought of this...i think it would be easier to swap a vdo speedo into your cluster...it works

            I would say use my drive gear, and pick the 2 best big gears from the motos, clean them well, and put them in. just my .02

              Check engine light at idle, lunges between 500-800. Jerky response. What's up?

                        Vacuum leak somewhere?

                        So in other news, after I crunched my car I had to drop my other car off for a clutch job. Then the transfer case in my truck exploded. So I went from 3 cars to none in about 36 hours

                          How do I go about that?


                          Also just saw a late model lacs ix sedan in a very bad neighborhood with a sketched driver. Hope it's not anyone's here, it was super clean.

                                Do the stomp test to get the code.
                                You can check the TPS with a multimeter or test light. Pull the plug from under the TB. You'll see 3 pins on the connector on the TB side. With the throttle plate closed, it should register as closed circuit on the right 2 pins and open on the left 2. Then moving away just slightly, you should have open circuit on pins 1-2 and pins 2-3. Then at WOT, closed on the left pair of pins, open circuit on the right.
