Testimonial: "Dangit, thats what I thought. Just bought it. pretty much all stock. It was pulled behind an rv for a while. It has a webber carb on it, which needs to be adjusted a tad. It came factory set and they didnt mess with it any. They said it only has 49x on it. Course it could have rolled over 2x too. I did notice it had a blue sealant around head. They guy said it hasn't had any work done to it. but it looks to me like its been rebuilt. so, pretty much you think I need to give it a rebuild?"

Look on the transmission near the bell housing, this is where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Loosen the nut and pull the end out. Turn it manually by hand to see if it is turning and inspect it for damage. This is usually the spot where the cable breaks. You may find it loose and stuck in the transmission when you remove the cable. You can take the broken end out with a pair of needle nose pliers.
Please remember to rate this fix.

The shifter sheet is worn out or not even there (its rubber) from multiple uses. It eventually decades.
Tons of Samurai enthusiast retailers carry them. Lowrangeoffroad, Petroworks, Trail Tough, and more.
They also carry the one for the tranny shifter.
