These are run by a module on your trans now. It is the same one that shifts the truck. They are kind of expencive to replace. You will see it on the driverside of you truck on the side of the trans. There is going to be two that you will see it is going to be the inside one that runs the speedo.

Did the transmission you put in have the the pick up on the output shaft. Pull out the vss and see if the pick-up is on the shaft or a speedo gear is on the shaft. If it has a gear, you will have to change it to a pick up wheel. The older 700 transmissions used gears.

I would recommend a used instrument cluster if you know of any junkyards around your area. Otherwise check Ebay or elsewhere on line for one.

Replacement of speedometer on 1988 F150 V6 5 Speed


Easiest to just get a new gauge cluster -

Remove the dash bezel (some screws/clips), then remove the 4-5 screws that hold the cluster in (can't remember exactly how many). Pull the gauge panel partially out, remove wires and detach speedo cable.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

How do you get the starter out of 1988 chevy S-10 pick up 4 wheel drive 5 speed trans


Generally there are two bolts holding the starter in.  I have a 98 cavalier and I recently replaced the starter.  Not hard but not too easy either.  You might have a little more room than I did so it houldn't be too hard.  Go to autozone.com.  They have free online repair manuals.  Good luck.

Speedo quits


There is an inherent problem with the 1988 trucks as there is a vehicle speed sensor that was no good to start with. The check engine light will produce a code in the prom that indicates the vss, check for a replacement either from GM, or a reputable auto parts store and replace it. It is located at the back of the transmission on the tail shaft just before the driveshaft. Good luck.
