eatin speedo gears

hey i replaced the small gear on the cable and it ate those up... talked to the local ford dealership and they told me to replace the drive gear inside the transfer case.. about 7 months ago i did that and put a new gear on the cable again. just a couple weeks ago all of a sudden the speedo quits working again...again i replaced the cable gear and it went out right away.. anyone know why this would keep happening i don't drive the truck like a bat outta hell or anything... thank you in advance for any info

86 F-250 4X4..7.3 non turbo from an 89.. E injectors and pump turned up.. 4 speed..3.55 gears.. new dual 4" exhaust by diamond eye-- with the muffler > for now!

Maybe your truck is hungry? What does the gear look like after your trucks tears it up? Are you sure its being properly installed? Is it also the correct gear?

Check the speedometer cable for binding. Most likely the cable needs to be replaced.

yeah it's hungry! the gear looks like an hourglass... more worn in the center than the ends.

the cable is brand new as i thought that was the problem and replaced that first 7 months ago.. and the gears should be the correct ones cuz i told the dealership to give me the matched set
