Anyone ever had any luck trying to fix an odometer that stopped working?  I recently did an SR5 cluster swap to add the tach and oil pressure gauge, but the odometer in the cluster I got doesn't seem to work.  The speedo works, but both the trip and regular odometer don't move at all.  I opened it, and nothing looks out of place.

The old cluster doesn't have a trip odometer, so swapping it's guts will likely not work.

I haven't fixed one, but I've messed with them - keeping the trucks odometer while swapping speedometers.  They're mechanical... Can you use a drill to turn the speedo drive and see what isn't working?  Maybe swap in parts from a 22RE if necessary.

No, sadly mine is a bit newer with the electronic speedo.  I'll just have to see if I can find another cluster.  No worries.  I'm stoked about getting the tach and rest of the cluster working though.  The speedo does work, so it's not high on the priority list, I just can't check my mileage.

I had mine apart after I did my turbo conversion. They really aren't that complex if you are reasonably mechanically inclined. 

Once it's all apart, find a way to turn the speedo and do so slowly and see what is/isn't working.

It's an electronic speedo, without the mechanical speedo cable.
