Questions

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?

Asked by: T-Rebel
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.

Is this unit have cable ends on both sides. I mean if I attach this to my jeep transfercase that uses a cable can I still attach the cable to the output side of this sender?

Asked by: Mike369
Thank you for your question. Yes, this sensor has a mechanical output you can hook a speedometer cable to.

Will this sender work on a 1990 dodge dakota with the auto trans? I think it has a 42rh in it. I intend on using it with your spedo.

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.

Asked by: mike m
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.

I have a 4l60 trans and I have a mechanical autometer speedometer will this work

Asked by: Scooter
Hi 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.

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??

Asked by: Troydy
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.

Hello! I have a 79 cj5 with T18 tranny with a model 20 transfer case. Will this fasten right to that?

Asked by: 79cj5man
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.
