I have a 1963 GMC that I have put a Tremec 5 speed with an electric speedometer hook up. Will this unit work hooking the electronic hook up to the original mechanical speedometer in the truck?Thank you for your question. No, this unit installs directly into a mechanical transmission and converts the signal to an electric speed signal. It does not work the other way around.Date published: 2019-06-12

I have a mechanical speedometer from autometer that I installed in a model A, but I have a 700R4 tranny that's electrical. will the speed sensor (5291) work on my car.The sensor outputs a square wave electrical signal. If by mechanical, you mean the gauge requires a rotating speedometer cable, then no it will not work.Date published: 2019-02-27
I have a 4l60 trans and I have a mechanical autometer speedometer will this workHi Scooter, thank you for the question. To drive a mechanical speedometer with a 4L460E trans that features an electronic VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor), you would need some type of electronic to mechanical conversion. Basically the opposite of our 5291 sender. There are a few out there in the marketplace, but we do not currently offer one.Date published: 2019-01-18
Gday Autometer. I have one of these fitted to my Holden one tonner via a custom dash. I am running a GM Trimatic gearbox that has the push in type speedo cable, how does this unit attach to the gearbox? Is there a threaded adapter to suit??Thank you for the question. Our 5291 is designed to thread onto a GM style 7/8-18 threaded style cable output. If you have a cable output/speedometer drive gear that is not threaded, it will need to be replaced (if possible) with a threaded style. Otherwise, if there is no electronic signal present in the form of a VSS, you will need to provide some type of alternative method to drive the speedometer like a 5289 GPS sender or a universal sender, such as our 5290.Date published: 2018-12-05
Hello! I have a 79 cj5 with T18 tranny with a model 20 transfer case. Will this fasten right to that?Thank you for your question. As long as it still has a drive gear with a threaded output a speedometer cable would normally attach to, yes, you can attach this directly to that.Date published: 2018-11-29
