6 Stepper Motor Chevy AVALANCHE V8 5.3 8.1 2003-2006 Gauge Cluster Speedo Speedometer x6
$16.5 for 6, or $2.75 each.
The inscription says VID29-02P.
Well, I decided to take one apart.
Time to find a datasheet.
Here is one for a similar one, the MR series: http://clearwater.github.com/gaugette/resources/mcr/2010410104720473.pdf
which is where I get my guess of VID’s “Angle of rotation of motor with internal stop” as equal to 315 degrees from.
Here’s a note of the rather obscure manufacturers:
For instance, in our case:
Hong Kong based VID also manufacture a range of similar motors. Their motors are black, and have a black model number starting with “vid”.
I also decided to buy (off of ebay) some less strangely shaped and hopefully easier to couple to stepper motors. They turn out to be cheaper too!

28BYJ-48 – 5V Stepper Motor Datasheet
“New 1pc 5V 4-phase 5-wire Stepper Motor Gear Motor 28BYJ-48”
$8.72 for 4, or $2.18 each.
Those should get here in two weeks. It’s nice to just order fun things ahead of time and feel like I am getting good deals.
That’s all for now.
