Odometer not working

I know this has been posted several times, but my odometer doesn't work, while my speedo does. I've looked all over the place for the gear that turns the odometer but I can't find it? Where in the heck is it?

Go to odometergears.com. Most people only need the 12 tooth gear "E1" to repair the VDO odometer.

Odometer repair

Am I going crazy or are they really charging $60+ for the tiny little 12 tooth plastic gear to repair the odometer?

Man, I'm not cheap, but I'd rather carve one out of wood by hand than pay that much for that little sucker.

It's 25 bucks for the E1 with 4 bucks shipping. That still seems rather high for a plastic gear. Anyone else have it cheaper?
