Speedo Gear Effect On Odometer?

Does the number of teeth in the Speedometer gear effect the odometer? I just went from a 36 tooth gear in my car to a 45 tooth gear, to lower the speedometer reading. It now seems more accurate, but the odometer seems to still be reading about a third more miles than actual. I thought both would be effected by the number of teeth on the speedo gear, but maybe not?

Re: Speedo Gear Effect On Odometer?

the speedometer and odometer both run off the same cable at the same time, so if you get the speedometer correct the odometer should also be correct
