Speedomoter cable plug has been unpluged and the wires cut
The speedomoter cable has been seperated at the conector plug and the two wires leading to the spedomoter cable have been cut. Will it work for a quick fix to simply splice the wires together. The cable itself is still intact. The conector plug coming off the transmission has a female end and the male counterpart normally housing the wires coming from the spedo-cable has been removed leaving bare wires.

You most likely have a faulty speedometer transducer, or loose/poor connections to this unit.
The unit is generally unrepairable - replacement required.
The transducer unit is mounted on the gearbox at the tailshaft drive output.
there are alot of harnesses to unplug.they missed a few by the sounds of it.
the cruise control is a cylinder that is vacuum operated and connected to the throttle cable.
check the vacuum lines and the wiring and make sure no wiring has been damaged installing the new engine.look for a plug that has clean looking pins,as the plug on an 8 year old car is clean on the inside.
It is possible that the connector came off the back of the circuit board behind the speedometer. Do the lights work IN the speedometer and gauges? Could also be that the ground wire loosened up under the dash, usually on the drivers side. Just some suggestions that I thought might help. Best wishes to you.
