My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Have you tried connecting to see what you get on the cluster? A speedometer shop may have a jumper harness with a resistor to put inline or they can reprogram the cluster to work on the new transmission. Both transmisions use the similar hall sensor, but the RPMs for the speed versus signal is different. The old cluster just needs the programming for the new cluster. Otherwise a nee transmission dor the vehicle will be what is needed or st least move the parts over into the old case.

Please let me know if you still need assistance with this, if there is a rating issue, and/or you need more time to respond. I like to make sure all my customers are satisfied since you did pay a deposit for me to assist you, whether I’m paid by a positive rating feedback or not.
