Questions

Do you make a hall type speed sensor that has provision to also attach a mechanical speedo cable to ? I would like to keep my original mechanical speedo and also send a signal to my pcm without using a wheel sensor or external tailshaft sensor.

Asked by: Lance61F100
We do not offer anything like this. You would only have the option of using a mechanical speedometer of switching over to an electronic speedometer.

I have a 85 s10 T5 trans (mechanical speedo) with a 1993 2.5 engine Will this 5291 adapter give me the correct pulses per mile for the 1993 ECM and still allow me to connect the mechanical speedo cable?

Asked by: Rober
Hi Rober, This 5291 speed sensor is designed to operate our electric speedometers. It will not supply a correct VSS signal to your ECM. Thanks, Jim

I currently have a 700R4 in my 68 Firebird and the stock speedo reads about 15 MPH fast, will this cause the sensor to be off as well? Does this need to be corrected before installing the sensor? Thanks!

When I install it on the trans, tighten the nut it is loose.  Should it be?

Asked by: Nova
Thank you for your question. While typically everything will fit snugly, subtle differences from one application to the next can cause the mounting nut or housing to appear a little lose. The most important thing is that the small drive key sticking out of the speed sensor is securely meshing with the drive gear in the transmission. As long as that connection is secure and it is turning properly, the sensor should work just fine paired with any of our electric speedometers.

HI EVERYONE, I HAVE A ELECTRIC TRANSMISSION AND MECHANICAL SPEEDOMETER, I WOULD WORK? OR WHAT IS MY OPTION? OR WHAT SENSOR I NEED? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

Asked by: HOMERTJ
Thank you for your question. The mechanical speedometer is cable driven so you will need to get a electronic speedometer to get this to work with your speed sensor.
