speedo/mileage dead pt2

A mechanic tried getting a kink out of the cable but still no joy, he was also told their was a fault with the car/gearbox (escorts) and I might need
a new gearbox :( Can't you just replace the cog/mechanism? I read somewhere it can get rounded off and stop working. thanks Mike
