I am looking for the red 21 tooth gear for my ‘85 4x4 ranger speedometer. Is there a part number for this gear? Are they compatible with other fords, i.e. mustangs, older fords?

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
I have got them from eBay when I've needed a different speedo gear.

Thanks! I did find one on Ebay and Bronco Graveyard. It looks like the ones for older F-150s and Broncos work. Once it arrives I will confirm.

As far as I know, there is a difference between the manual transmission and auto transmission speedo gear sets. When I needed these, I found them on eBay cheaper, even for Ford NOS gears, not copies. Hope it works out for you.

And 4wd's use the same gears as a manual transmission regardless of transmission (speedometor drive goes into transfer case not transmission)

This is the one I bought from eBay. It works and installs in less than 5 minutes.
My truck has 32” tires and 4.56 gears. This is a 21 tooth Speedo gear. It is within a few mph of being correct.
