I have just put a gearbox in my car and realised the box has a manual speedo and the car has an electronic one. What can I do? also the gearstick is too far back in the car to select 2nd and 4th gears. Please help

Hello and Welcome to justanswer...Uk car..Im afraid the transmission you have been supplied is one for an older vehicle - you may not be able to use that one Im afraid - The drive for the speedo is totally different - I dont just mean the obvious fact as you have mentioned - re the electronic / cable drive - but the drive in the gearbox may well be different - meaning you cant fit the VSS ( speed sensor ) physically to that transmission...Try it - offer it up and see if it will - but if not, you cannot use that transmission for sure - The other issue is the position of the gearstick - Check the linkage / adjustment - but I think you will find that the transmission is just not compatable Im afraid ...So check as above - let me know if I can help you anymore - but I do think this could be bad news from what you have said... Obviously I dont know exactly what transmission you have fitted / had fitted - but its too old / wrong for your model I think you will find - definately if you cannot physically fit the vss as above and properly align the gearstick - - Im very sorry this doesn't look like good news for you - - Let me know if I can help anymore...
