If this is a 1990 transmission it should have a gear driven speed sensor (wires go to engine computer)along with the speedometer drive cable that goes to mechanical speedometer in dash.(all one unit that plugs into hole in tailshaft housing)They stopped making the drive gear on the output shaft around 1995 or so, and the speedometers went to digital.If the trans. you have does not have this drive gear and hole on the tailshaft for it, then you would have to tear the trans down and install a new output shaft with the gear machined on it, and a new tailshaft housing with the mounting hole for the cable and sensor from a earlier model.Hardly worth all that trouble.
