GL1200 Aspencade Odometer Motor

The odometer on my 84 1200 Aspencade stopped working at 132,000 kms. The speedo and trip odometer work.

I opened up the instrument panel. The odometer mechanicals work fine and the shaft for the motor turned ok. I cleaned it all up - just mild cleaning - and put it back together and it still doesn't work.

So I have to go back in.

Before I do I am trying to find out what this motor is to see if there is a suitable replacement for it that I can purchase in advance. Does anyone have a part name, number and / or manufacturer?

Also, this bike is Canadian and runs in Kms. Would a US motor that runs in miles work if I was able to change the worm gear on the motor?

Or, can this motor be taken apart and repaired / cleaned?

I am surprised that not one manual covering the 1200 deals with the odometer, other than to replace it as a whole which is tough to do since they don't make them anymore.

In order to clear a safety here the odometer has to work so it has to be fixed.

Any experts around who can provide advice?
