    Default BA7/5 gearbox spindle

    hey froggers,

    I am having trouble fitting the speedo drive into the the BA7/5 gearbox in the 504ti. Seems not to be able to go in far enough. Anyone know the correct number of teeth on the spindle drive? Wether that is the defining aspect to fitment or what other wrinkle may be denying my best efforts to get a reading on the speedo?

    gggrrrr, bugger etc etc ....

    hope you are all collectively well and happy, on average ((except dino)of course)

    Do you know exactly what car the gearbox was out of, ie, what diff ratio it had behind it? That will effect the number of teeth on the driving gear in the back of the gearbox, which will affect which speedo driven gears will mesh with it.

    If you know, then I can tell you the rest...

    It's good to see you're well enough to muck about under cars, Ed.

    Did you just put in a different gearbox ? Or are you just replacing the O-ring ?
    Does it definitely look like it doesn't go in far enough ? Because what I usually look for is some other part in the whole equation that I have messed with....like the speedo cable, or the speedo gauge itself.
    When you drive the car without the speedo in it, can you see the upper end of the cable turning ? Can't hurt to double check.....

    hey scott and beano,

    all is as good as can be, check speedo, check cable and drive, check have 3 differing spindle drives; 21, 20, 19 teeth, check have tried 3/4 times to fix, check frustrated

    bought gearbox from our old friend gary when at southern adelaide premises, fitted three years ago into Ti body running standard diff, 4.11 - 1, I think, behind 1800 motor

    should I try all three, one after the other and is it the trick to use a slight anti clockwise motion to the spindle while marrying the two together?

    also having trouble with kawasaki brush cutter, mtd rideon(tecumseh), ex army gen set(wisconsin) and singer sewing machine, all help appreciated


    cheers

    my experience with sewing machines is that it is almost always a problem with the top thread tension.

    Hi Ed,

    If the gearbox is from an SR/GR (I have a feeling that I know (read: used to own) the car that it might have come from), it will have been for a 3.89:1 diff with 185/70R14 tyres. The original speedo drive for that car would have been a Green 26 tooth unit. The colour designates the pitch of the teeth. That is the only speedo driven gear (from the 504/505/604 range) that will fit your gearbox.

    Or the bobbin race is out of time with the needle. This causes a grating noise and poor stitch looping.
    Old style sewing machines are very similar to old time 35mm projectors in the way they are made.

    Icon3 Sewing machine help

    Hi Edge, there’s a fair bit of info on YouTube for different sewing machine problems and different models. The looping does sound like the tension. I find I have to fiddle with it ‘til I get lucky!

    Here are a couple of links but there are lots more if your internet can cope with YouTubes.
