Some of the late model GM transmissions have a electric speedometer drive. My 90 Silverado did.

When I changed the rear end ratio.....the speedometer was OFF. It had a chip with 5-6 legs off each side. I found a chart that told (GM service manual) which leg up and which leg down was the correct configuration for the gear I had installed.

I believe the 91 Camaro was that way also.


3.73 is a factory offered gear SO I know it is a simple matter to correct

Thanks "Doublevision" #5093 for the speedo cable charts ,I'll savethose for future reference.However this model uses a reluctor (toothed rotor) and an electromagnet speed sensor. Also Thanks "Deuseroadster" #3897 I have a 1991 Siverado GM manual and I found the push/pull set up. My buddy with the Camaro Says he can't find it next to his ECM and the Dealer said they couldn't help him.What I would need to know is what the Camaro Manual says. Thanks.
