1996 Xplorer 400 Speedometer not working!
I have a 1996 Xplorer 400 in great shape except the Speed-o doesnt work. To troubleshoot it I disconnected the speedo cable from the transmission and hooked up to a drill. It spun up just fine and the speedometer/odometer worked correctly. So therefore it looks like the problem is in the transmission or the hook-up point to the transmission.
I have looked at the microfiche and just cant find the fiche that shows the connection of the speed-o cable to the transmission?!?!?? It looks just like the speed-o connection on my Polaris snowmobiles (I think they re-use lots of parts between models and even ATV to snowmobile). Can anybody post a link to the microfiche for this part?? I am trying to get the part number for the hub that the speedo cable hooks up to, which in turn is bolted to the left side of the transmission by three bolts.
Second, whats the chances that the bolt on part is the problem and not something internal in the transmission?? Really want to have a working speedometer/odometer, but not planning on pulling and cracking open the entire transmission if that is where the problem lies!
Thanks for any help!
