Hi, Installing a 2 wire VSS that came with the Auto Meter Gauge Kit. Do I need to trim the Speedo Shaft ? When I install onto GM 350 Trans. the VSS spins around even though the two mounting nuts are tight. Thanks.

I have a 1991 Jeep YJ, a 4798 electronic speedometer. Question, is this the right speed generator for my combination?

Asked by: DL_asap
If you have a transmission that only has a mechanical output for the speed signal, this or the 5291 would be able to thread on to a dry cavity and produce an electrical signal to work with the speedometer.

will this work on an 89 camaro t5 transmission that has mechanical speed sensor to convert it to work with an 89 trans am speedometer.

This sensor is designed to drive our electric speedometers. It will not properly provide a signal to an OEM speedometer.

Will this work with A GM 350 transmission and a dolphin programmable gauge

Asked by: Geo nova
This sensor will work with your GM transmission. It was designed for use with our speedometers, we cannot be sure as to use with competitors speedometers.

Hi, looking for Speed Sensor for Old Toyota W50 5 speed trans.

Asked by: Koji LB
We're not sure what that original speedometer output would be. If it's 7/8-18, our 5291 or 5293 would work. Alternatively, we offer a 5290 universal sender as well as our 5289 GPS sender.

Will this sensor work with a 87 Jaguar XJ6 speedometer and 700r4 transmission?

Asked by: Rob6
If you are using another speedometer that is not Autometer, our sensor will not be compatible with it. Also, if I am not mistaken, the 700R4 transmission has its own VSS.

I'm converting my 1994 Chevy blazer ( 5 speed factory Tranny to am sm465 Muncie tranny) will this allow factory speedometer to operate properly'

Asked by: RON525
This will not be compatible. It may actually drive your speedometer, but it will be far too few pulses per rev/mile to be accurate. This is around 16,000 PPM, while many OEMs require as many as 40,000 PPM or more per mile.
