I've got a C4, and I believe the speedo drive gear is supposed to have seven teeth. Anyway, when I look in the hole where the speedo cable goes, I can't tell the color, and when I try to count the teeth with my finger nail, I get up to six, then there's a little space, and then a whole bunch more teeth as far as my finger will stretch. Does that sound right??? I'd rather not pull the tail shaft just to get this bit of info.

Since you're counting teeth, you must want to select the correct speedo driven gear. Assume the drive gear is seven, select the gear you need and if its wrong, then reselect based on the amount of speedometer error. You have a 50/50 chance of getting it right the first time and it only costs $7 if you're wrong. Hardly worth worrying about...
