The basic idea on how a digital speedometer works is that the equipment senses how fast the wheels are spinning. This information about wheel spinning rate can be obtained by using optical sensor on the drive shaft. It then correlates the data in its processor which then displays it on the LCD/LED dashboard.

There is no timing belt on a 305 unless it is an aftermarket belt drive system.

A speedometer drive can be installed in the transmission, and the speedometer cable will attach here. You may need a new speedometer as they used a variety of drive ratios. The speedo drive is a standard part for the fh, and is readily available.

Your shift linkage may have slipped or become loose. Check your linkage.

Depends on the year, engine size, and how you drive. Two gallons should be plenty.

It depends on the manufacturer. Most rear wheel drive vehicle speedometer cables connect to a gear in the transmission "tailshaft". Front wheel drive vehicles may connect at another location on the transaxle or they may use an electronic Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) that sends a digital signal to the speedometer, in which case there is no speedometer cable. Other vehicles, such as the old VW Beetle, used a speedometer cable that connected directly to the front wheel. Unfortunately, there is no way to list what method was used by all vehicles.

Chevy impala ss 94-96, Buick roadmaster, watch for the rear end some are 7.5 with will require a different drive shaft. The 8.5 is a better housing anyway.

Speed sensor on rear of transmission where speedometer drive used to be. If ecm receives no speed data transmission, it will send no shift signal.

all 700r4 transmissions that have cable driven speedometers and are 2 wheel drive will fit all 700r4 transmissions that have cable driven speedometers and are 2 wheel drive will fit

there is a speed sensor on the rear of the tranny which puts out a pulse to the ecm this is converted to dc current to drive the speedometer faster the speed more pulses more pulses the higher the dc the higher the dc the faster the speed display
