Default how to change speedo key

if your speedo quits working, then there is a good chance this little key broke off,

1:remove the secondary clutch, this is just to get you some elbow room

2: remove 3 nuts that are holding the gear drive on to the bearing.

3: remove cover, there will be part of the key in this cover, pull that out

4: the other part of the key will be in the axle, wipe all the grease away, now if you can grab the key with an oring pick or needle nose then put in new key and reverse the other steps. BUT, if you cant pull out the key do this little trick.

get a sharp small chisel or a sharp screw driver, I mean very sharp. with the grease cleaned away you will see there is a shoulder, tap the chisel at the back of the shoulder against the axle. then after a couple taps, rotate the track 180 degrees, tap again, it should only take a couple times and the insert will pop out. now simply remove the broken key, tap the insert back into the axle and put the new key in the bearing cap and reassemble.

Now, keep in mind that the usual reason for that key breaking is a bearing is going bad.
Since you nave it this far apart, check that bearing!

after you take the bearing cap off, clean off all the grease with a rag and some cleaner so its shiney clean, you will see the insert is sticking out of the shaft, where the insert meets the shaft, you simply get to that joint with a sharp screw driver or chisel and tap lightly, rotate the shaft 180 degrees and tap again to get it to start to move.

Thanks man I will give it a try. So it is the junction between the bearing and the end cap(shoulder)?

no luck man. My key shredded pretty bad. i can pull out little pieces with needle nose but it still feels like the old key is in there. I assume there is a slot in the shaft the new key should fit in. Sorry.. I am ignorant at this. thanks for the help

look at part 31, if you have the end of the axle clean, you can see the piece that the key goes into, its about a 1/2" round, and a 1/8" thick, then you have the end of the axle. that little piece comes out.

Mad,
I have that piece out. It still feels like there is a piece of the key in there. Is that possible?

I guess a better question is. When you put the key back in is there anything else in the axle that holds the key except for part 31? Did the Dealer give me a speedo key that is too f'in long? hmmm between the old one and the new the is about a 1/2 inch difference. Thanks again for the help

get a can of brake and parts cleaner and blast in there before you put the bushing and key in, there could easily be other parts in there, maybe the guy before you broke one off and just shoved it in. the brake and parts cleaner will take out any grease real fast letting you see what you are poking at. you shouldnt have to cut the key.
