Speedometer cable question here; the short sleeve with its piece of square drive cable and spring are missing from my 1986.5 2WD Hardbody 4 cyl, 5 speed stick; where can I obtain a replacement or, am I looking at spending $$$ for a complete replacement cable? The speedo head seems to work when I turn the little square drive in back of it.

Junk yard. Or if you are lucky it'll be with the cable.

Parts availability really seems to be hit or miss with D21's; either scads are available and relatively inexpensive (brake, engine, radiator, fan shroud, etc) or very difficult to find (U joints for Japan built models, speedo cables, etc) and $$$.

That drive is what I need, and around here (Bullhead City Az) hardbodies are all but extinct despite rust being a non issue.

It's not really the parts availability. Most parts are easy to find. It's that that specific part seems to lack an individual part number. I haven't found it in an exploded diagram yet.
