Thank you. The gear in the transmission looks very good. I just put the transmission in last year and haven't driven it much, less than a hundred miles. I'm still looking for solutions. Your help is appreciated.
I don't think there is a connection. There's a speed sensor that the cable runs through the cable goes through. It doesn't control the speedometer, it gives a reading how fast it is going for cruise control. The cruise control was off the last 2 trips. The speedometer is mechanical, not electric. Thanks again for your help.
The VSS at your transmission is sending a signal to your cruise control box. You said when operating the cruise control that the speed was fluctuating (not steady), unless I misunderstood.
By removing the VSS, you can see whether your speedometer is not steady, which would indicate either a defect in cable inside the casing or a bad speedometer drive/driven gear. If the speedometer behaves smoothly with the VSS removed, the VSS may be providing an incorrect signal to your cruise control box. I suspect that with your new cable, drive gear, and driven gear, that the speedometer operates smoothly. The next likely culprit could be the VSS providing a bad signal to your cruise control box, wrong switch settings, or a problem in the wiring between the VSS and the cruise control box.
No, with the cruise control on it didn't fluctuate, with it off it was fluctuating. I am going to stop working on this part for now and try to fix the leaks before putting it on the road again. The first time it had the cruise control on. The last 2 it was fluctuating with the cruise control off.
