Questions

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.

I have one of your new mechanical speedometers in a gauge cluster. What do I need besides this to make it work?

Asked by: Hustlinbill
Thank you for your question. If you are using this with one of our electric style speedometers you would only need to supply your own wiring in order to get the signal wire from the sending unit to the back of the gauge. If you have a mechanical speedometer this unfortunately will not work as those are cable driven.

Will this generator, or the (seemingly) similar Rostra 8000 pulses-per-mile type, be able to feed (via wire splice) the Autometer speedometer AND several other accessories (GV P-type, the Rostra cruise control)?

Asked by: ABW66
Thank you for your question. No, you would not be able to connect multiple devices to this sensor. However, our electric speedometers do have an output terminal on them to send a signal to a cruise control or other device if necessary. So you can run this to the speedometer, then run the speedometer output to one of your other devices.

My 97 46re states the factory vss is a 8 pulse/rotation. I need a vss and cable drive for the vehicle I’m transferring this trans into. Will the 16 pulse per rotation cause an issue?

Asked by: 51spud
Thank you for your inquiry. Our 5291 speed sensor is designed to operate with our electric speedometers. It will not work properly to supply a signal to any OEM powertrain control module.

Hi I have a LS in my Pontiac with a th400 gearbox will the VSS plug from the harness plug in the this I’m running a manual speedo cheers 

Asked by: Mark c
Thank you for your question. No, this does not convert from an electric signal to a mechanical signal. It will take a mechanical signal from a transmission and convert it to an electric signal for an electric speedometer. It does not work the other way around.
