Hey guys so im potentially getting a manual Cummins soon. Its a 4x4 1994 dodge ram 2500 5.9 12v and the speedo doesn't work. So im just wondering is there a difference in location of the speed sensor on a manual compared to an auto? If so where is it? Cuz id like to order the part the same day I get the truck.

I know on my 4x4 there is a gear in the rear bearing housing on the transfer case.

Alright so its by the rear output shaft? And do u by chance have a picture of it? Just so i can see which sensor it is. Cuz I know there's 2 types but i dont know If ones specifically for a certain drivetrain type or is like transmission specific. Just all in all confused as **** and need to see what my speed will be😂

Be sure the sensor is clocked correct. The sensor gear is off center.

Have you downloaded the factory service manual? It has pictures. BTW, all 2nd gens from '94 to '97 use the same sender. 2 and 4WD.

I see you don't read all responses and didn't open the FSM. Not "pretty much", it is exactly the same as every 4X4 and 2WD automatic or manual transmission.

If yours doesn’t have the gear, then it fell off inside the tail housing. You might want to fish that out.

They are all gear driven and have a ring to hold the sensor in the rear bearing housing. Don’t break the bolt. The guy who had one of 95s before me did so now I have to tear it down and get it out this week.
