Default Speedometer drive gear 1997

Does anyone know where to find the drive gear assembly
that attaches to the 5spd man transmission for a 1997 Geo tracker?
My speedometer cable is good but where it attaches at the transmission the
it doesn't grab.
Looks like the connection is sheared off!
Thanks
Gene

Suzuki better supports these cars, than Chevy. I would try Suzuki, either a local dealer or SW Suzuki:
Suzuki Parts | OEM Suzuki Parts | Genuine Suzuki Parts
They have an online catalog, and if you cannot find what you are looking for, send Keith an email. They are extremely helpful. Good luck.
Conversely, you may also be able to pull one from your local junkyard, from either a Geo Tracker or Suzuki Sidekick.

Thank you Bex,
I sent them a request and am still waiting for an answer. Meanwhile I
see in the repair manual that it can be taken apart. Maybe I can figure out a way to make the old one work!

The speedometer driven gear is a gear...it can't be repaired if teeth are missing, etc. However, you can take the gear case out, see if the pin is still there, etc., etc.

Default Still looking for the part

Thanks Bex,
I understand and will take a picture when I work on it again.
I am just looking for the whole assembly to make it easier to replace.
Not having any luck yet hard to find a Geo Tracker in the Junk Yards and not sure which Sidekick model is the same.
It is described as the Driven gear and the Driven gear case
Thanks Gene

Hi Bex,
Not sure if this is the way to post the pics but here goes.
I took it apart after removing the pin that holdt the gear in and
it does look sheared or broke off.
Now to fing the gear. Any idea on what year or model Sidekick will
also work?

The tranny is the same from 1989-1998, so the gear from any of those should work. Suzuki Sidekick or Geo Tracker will be the same 5 speed tranny.

Hey Bex,
I just wanted to thank you for your help. I went to Suzuki dealership
and ordered the gear. Should be in sometime next week from Ga.
It is expensive but the junk yards are out of vehicles.
I was hoping to get a response on who has used parts.
I know E-Bay is a good source.
Thanks Gene

You're welcome. Just for your info, you often need to be careful with ebay for parts - many of them are cheap, aftermarket knock-offs!! Glad you got your problem sorted, and good luck!

Hi Bex,
Well Bex they ordered the wrong one. So now I have to wait
another week. The parts guy said he was sorry, Mine is green made of plastic and the one they sent out was all meta and a smaller gear.
Oh well that's the way it goes.
I wished that I could find someone reliable that carries used parts tho.
