Sounds good, gotta come up with some sort of bracket to mount that conversion "gizmo type adapter thing".........

31ROC Thanks for the suggestions guys.
I am thinking I can attach a short mechanical cable (I hope I can get it in there between linkage), then install the convertor on the other end of the cable, which will enable me to run a wire to the electric speedo?
If so, just need to figure a way to support/mount the short cable/convertor assembly.....

See attached photos.....
My knowledge here is very limited but I do know the pontiac speedo drive was on the passenger side of the tailshaft. Worse case scenario you could swap tailshaft housings. I am sure there is an easier solution but thought I would share that.

RWENUTS I've used offset ratio adaptors to miss linkage before. They make 90* ones too. MIght find something here that would work.
