Electronic speedometer conversion
« on: December 12, 2017, 08:03:04 PM »
Has anyone swapped to an electronic speedometer?
What gauge did you use? What speedo cable sleeve or VSS?

I am doing a 4.0 HO swap with built driveline, including NV3550 trans, NP229 T-case, 3.54 front from a 4 cyl Eagle and 3.54 NON-C-clip Dana 44 rear from an '87 Wagoneer.

I'm about to button up the NP229 converted for Eagle use. I'll have a 36 tooth speedo gear to match the 3.54 axles and a Jeep aluminum speedometer gear drive sleeve instead of the Eagle plastic sleeve. At first I'll use a DRAC or JagsThatRun adapter to provide the VSS signal to the 4.0 ECU. I'd like eventually to convert entirely to electronic speed sensing, both for the ECU and the Speedometer.

Who has done that and what parts did you use?

There aren't too many electronic speedos out there that are cheap to swap over to. Most come in a complete package for all the gauges which might be your better bet to upgrade to. Intellitronix makes one I do believe, 4 or 5 different colors and is easily adapted to the Eagle.
