    ok about a year ago i was trying to put a speedo gear in my tranny as it didnt have one before so i was in the process fo poping out the freeze plug in the sied when a guy who was with me said oh i have done this 100s of times so he jumps in and proceeds to go at it with a small lever. long story short he ends up breaking the case or at least breaking a small part of the case where the freeze plug goes so my question is do oyu think i can just put the speedo gear in there and JB weld the crap out of it? its not in any stressful place? any ideas?

    thanks mike

    I seen your sig before i posted, and i was wondering how you liked it?

    I have never not seen a speedo in a dana 18.

    nor have i ever seen a married manual trans with a speedo in it, so somewhere there has to be a way to run a speedo.

    please let me know.
