Auto to 5spd swap speedometer problem

I I'm in the process of an auto to 5spd swap and
The swap came out of a 2001 dodge cummins with the 241hd transfer case
And the speedometer plug on mine has no were to plug in
On the newer transfer case is there some type of after market speedometer I can hook up or even a way to make this 241hd transfercase work on my 1995 12 valve


96 dually .....runs..... 95 single...trannyless

Cant use your transfer case? I'm pretty sure that's the only route but I am sure someone more knowledgeable will confirm or deny that.

If you have rear wheel ABS it is not a problem. Go to post #11
https://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/94...ed-sensor.html

Once you have the Dakota digital installed borrow a GPS from someone and calibrate it. I have nearly 140k miles on mine so far, no problems.

Not sure what you're going to do about the stock speedo.
'98 and newer has an electronic speedo, older has a gear that spins in the t-case.
I'm certain it would take a different PCM to make the stock dash speedo work but then you'd probably have a whole new set of problems.

Please post your final fix. A lot of whiners are complaining that the search feature doesn't give them answers. Thanks.
