QUESTIONS:

Will this work on a GM TH400

Asked by: FFORD
Your GM transmission should have the standard thread on cable fitting. This speed sensor should work for your application.

Does this sensor Fit the Borg Warner T18A

Asked by: APOD-529
Your Borg Warner trans should have the standard thread on fitting. The 5291 should work in this application.

If the transmission uses a 7/8"-18 thread for a mechanical speed cable this will work.

I have a '79 camaro w/TH400 transmission. I will be using a gauge cluster w/Auto Meter American Muscle gauges. Which speedometer sending unit will I need to use?

Asked by: TJ's Racing
You can either use 5291 or 5293 for a mechanical to electric speed sensor.

I PURCHASED A #2489 ELECTRONIC SPEEDOMETER WITH A #5291 SPEED SENSOR ... ABOUT 5 YEARS FOR A CLASSIC RESTO MOD TRUCK. THE SENSOR IS NOW LEAKING TRANS FLUID OUT OF THE CABLE IS THIS DUE TO AN "O" RING FAILURE OR AN INTERNAL SEAL FAILURE?

Asked by: GREYIRON1950
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately this is due to an O-ring within the transmission. From this O-ring failing it causes the fluid to leak out through the VSS as there are no seals to stop this on the unit.
