Re: 1991 Spirit Gauge Cluster in 1995 Acclaim
Yes you can use the gears from your old speedo, however...
The factory gears become very brittle over time and then break very easily so it will be hit or miss as to weather the old gears will stay together for any length of time or even be in one piece when you take apart your old speedo.
Take your old speedo apart first and take a good look at the gears, it will also serve to help you take apart the speedo in the newer cluster so you know what has to come apart.
The video on the odometergears.com site will help you other than where the 4 screws are located (Chrysler changed the location of the screws in 90) which I mentioned in my previous post.
My speedo stopped working and I had to get a used replacement that had an inop odometer so I swapped the gears from my old speedo (they were already replacements from odometergears.com) and while I was in there I was also able to remove the pin for the odometer and correct the mileage so it read what my original speedo read.
