  • Correct, you would need to swap out both for your application. You would need the 7 tooth Drive Gear and the 23 tooth speedo gear to correct your speedometer reading.

    Accurate Speedo

    November 10, 2013

    I changed rear gears from 327 to 373 and this speedo gear made my speedo accurate with the new gears. Checked the accuracy with my GPS and found that speedo was optimistic by 1MPH under 60MPH and 2MPH over 60. That's good enough for me. I don't know how accurate the speedo was before the geae change.

    quick an easy fix

    July 30, 2012

    Iv got a 98 gt that i have been building over the past year an from the fully built rear to the mildly built motor iv bought all of my performance gear from the one an only "American Muscle", an recently installed the 21 tooth speedo gear to try an help my drastic speedometer gain due to my ford racing 4.30s, the 21 tooth speedo gear helped a little but my speedometer is still off a little. Is there a speedo gear with more than 21 teeth? Over all good product.
