Most transmissions have a plastic gear mounted on the uotput shaft that connects to a gear on the end of the speedo cable or electronic sender unit for the speedo. This gear is normally driven by a steel ball embedded in the shaft and the gear has a slot that makes the ball act as a drive key. I would check by removing the sender unit/cable and seing if the gear can be rotated around the shaft. If it can be moved take the unit back to the reconditioners and ask for a warranty repair as the ball/ key has probably fallen out during assembly

Where is the speedometer cable on a1990 Chevy


it runs from the transmission to the speedometer on the dash by way of running along the firewall then into the cab of the truck. it threads into the driven gear assembly by a nut on the side of the transmission. just follow the cable from the trans to the speedo head.

Can a 94 chevy cheyenne transmission interchange with a 97 chevy silverado tranmission


Will it physically fit? yes. Will it be a direct replacement any everything hook right up and plug right in? If we are talking about an automatic then no. 1994's wiring was completely different than the 1997. Can it be made to work? possible, but I believe it would be more trouble trying to make it work than if the correct transmission were located and installed. If it is a cost issue where he has a good trans out of a 1994 he might see if a salvage yard will do some partial trading for the correct trans.

Speedometer is pegged out at 100 and won't work


Hi,
Likely one of your Speed Sensors (VSS) is bad. Sorry I don't know WHERE these are located, but get on some of the Chevy Truck forums for answers.

My speedometer does not work and I would like to fix it myself. I have a 1994 Chevy CK100


The speedometer is cable driven off the transmission. The first things to check are the cable and the gear that drives the cable on the transmission.
