I'm not sure when they switched to electric speedo. Have a look at the 400 trans you pulled out. At the rear, drivers side of the trans you will find either the screw attachment for the cable or a sender with an electrical plug on it. That will tell you if you have a cable. Otherwise look at the back of your speedo, if you lost the cable there will be a spot for the cable to click into. Happy hunting. You can convert your cable drive trans to electric speedo by removing the rear tailshaft cover and swapping the gear for a sender unit, or with an aftermarket adapter.
