Speedo and Odometer help

I had a 94 Dodge Dakota. It was the 3.9 Magnum had the 5 speed manual transmission and was 2wd. It blew up on me so I decided to make me a truck. I bought a 83 K5 Blazer rolling frame with a 305 350turbo and 203 transfer case. I took the Dakota cab off and mounted it to the blazer frame. Now I'm doing electrical. Hooking the motor up to run is no big deal i know how to do that. I need help hooking up the speedometer and odometer in the cab of the Dakota to something that will give them a reading from the 83 engine transmission and transfer case. Any help would be appreciated.

You can also check parts for the '87 Chevy pickup and Blazer, since that was when GM went to TBI and a computer. With the computer they needed to have an electronic speed sensor somewhere in the system.
