Check the gear very carefully that goes on the end at the transmission.It is plastic,and retained with a metal spring clip.The plastic can become "applecored" where as it doesnt make contact with the drive teeth on the transmission output shaft.If the gear is in order,the speedo cable operates correctly,and checks out ok,then it is likely a bad speedo head in the dash.Later model Ford trucks all used a PSOM (programmable,speedomoeter,odometer module) that was known to be somewhat problematic,but i think your year Ford is too early to have a PSOM.

How do i connect a wrangler speedometer to a turbo 350 transmission


Your factory tach won't be accurate because a 350 is an 8 cylinder engine. I put a 350 into a Vega, and my speedo was slightly off because of the differences between the ratios as well. I recommend looking for an aftermarket adapter, or a kit if you can't get the cable to connect into the tranny.

My speedometer is not working is it a cable? a fuse? a relay? i need to fix 1985 buick lesabre 307 v8 4 barrel rocker


Yes it is the cable type. The instrument cluster must first be removed. Depress the retaining clip on the back of the cluster to release the speedometer cable. Once the end of the speedometer drive cable is exposed, grip the inner cable with pliers and draw it out of the housing. Installation is the reverse of removal, but lubricate the entire cable. Use special speedometer cable lubricant, Not oil, for this purpose. Insert the cable into the housing using a twisting movement until the lower end is felt to engage with the pinion gear at the transmission. You can also check the Pinion Gear at the transmission, That is where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Some times these small nylon gears will strip out caused from no lubrication in the speedometer cable housing. If the above does not solve your problem you may need to change out the cluster itself to obtain a good working speedometer head. Good Luck and Happy New Year. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

Sounds like the problem is in the speedo head itself, in the dash. If fuild was leaking, I don't think the speedometer would work either? Sounds like the gear that turns the number wheels maybe bad or stripped.

Speedometer does not work 1991 GMC Sierra 2500


the turbo 350 doesn't have a output speed sensor like the trans that came with the truck orginaly. You will have to use a cable to drive a pluse generator,or switch the tail shaft housing with a 700r4e housing of the same length,and use the speed sender from the 700r4e or early 4l60e. note the tail shaft is the same splines but the 350 shaft detent hole my not line up with the relucture ring. therfor the output shaft needs to be change to, or have a relucter ring made.

You should have a speedometer cable that runs from the back of the trani, thru the fire-wall, and into the back oh the gauge cluster.

Speedometer


there is a clamp that either needs to be removed (10mm bolt holds it on) or on some transmisions it's an O-Ring that allows you to remove the speedo gear.

remove the speedo gear and bring it to the parts store so they can match up the identical amount of teeth so that the new one will not make your speedo run fast or slow. The gears are color coded however i have seen many instances where aftermarket ones have thier own color scheme and the convert charts are inaccurate so count the teeth
