92' and newer eletric speedometer swap to older




I just did a ZF5 swap to my 88' F350...however, it was a 92 and newer Zf5 speed without the speedometer port.

Does anyone know how to wire in a en electric speedo from a newer truck(92-97)???

Much appreciated!

Just tap into the ABS sensor wiring from the rear end under the dash at the ABS module. Then wire in both of the power wires and ground.
That should do it.

Here's a thread about how to do the swap: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...-issues-2.html

After getting the wiring figured out, you just have to cut up the old cluster to fit the 92+ speedo in place.
