    Hey all,

    I've got a '78 K5. The speedo hasn't worked since I bought the truck about a year and a half ago. I went and got new cables and hooked em up and nothing. I checked the hook up on the transfer case and it had the adapter, but there was nothing to drive the cable on the inside. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I pulled the adapter off and sure enough there was nothing. What the heck drives the cable inside the transfer case? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Is it a simple fix? I was looking at the exploded diagram of the 203 and it looked to be just that, an explosion. All help is appreciated! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    There should of been a gear in there, to drive the cable. Perhaps someone removed it at one time /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Thanks for the reply. As far as someone removing it, it is very likely as I have found so much stuff done half way on this truck. The 203 has a part time kit in it. must not have put everything back in I guess. Is it a difficult job to pop the gear in? Anything I need to be aware/wary of when I do it?
