Anyone know if the speedometer cable gear is the same on the T10 and T5 or the Toploader and T5 ? I know the toploader and the T10 are different. They turn in different directions. How about the auto's and T5 ?

Toploaders are all by themself. All other Fords turn the same direction.

The T10 is not the same gear as a toploader. I just installed and pulled one back out of my t10 thinking they were the same and it ran backwards. It looks like the 3 spd and t10 are the same.

Cheec2h: you are correct. I have both a T10 and toploader side by side, and when I first disassembled the car, I ran the speedo cable into the toploader, and saw that is turned fine. I did it again this AM, and found out it didn't move at all! I guess I originally plugged it into the T10, which is what I had installed in the car.

Sorry about that!
