SO I read most of the "How the speedometer works" and "Speedometer problems" threads and was able to figure out a lot. When I bought my 1994 Ranger, it had a transmission from a newer model Mazda truck in it. I recently replaced the clutch assembly and saw the speedo cable just dangling there - and couldn't find a place to hook it up. After reading a bit I realize now that I have a mechanical Speedometer and the transmission I have is set up for "VCDS."

With that stated, is there anything I can do (adapter...?) to get it working or should I just let it go. I really don't mind not having a speedo because I don't drive that fast to begin with, but it would be nice to check mileage. Are there any alternatives I can add to the truck to calculate how far I'm going? The odometer stopped at 301k.

Thanks!
