94 s10 2.2 5 speed speedometer questions

Ok I have a 94 s10 2.2 5 speed and Im building a gauge cluster for it.
My questions is what type of speed sensor or speed sender does it have factory? Its a VDO Speedometer and I have no idea if i can just use my factory sender since im still using an electronic sender. Heres the wiring diagrams for it. http://static.summitracing.com/globa...vdo-437353.pdf
All replies, tips, advice, etc etc will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again,
Derek

should be able to just wire it into the stock wiring at the dash and the stock speedometer uses 4,000 pulses per mile if I'm not mistaken.

No, you will have to connect it either at the cluster's wiring or at the DRAC directly, but you might as well just use the stock connector for the wires.

Just use the stock wiring that's already at the connector for the stock cluster. It's all right there.

Re: 94 s10 2.2 5 speed speedometer questions

Ok...so lemme see if i get the right or not LOL I hate wiring and diagrams and all that shit LOL Anyway, so according to this diagram https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9SE...TEw/edit?pli=1 it will be a light blue/black wire that comes off the vehicle speed sensor buffer and it goes to the VSS. Is that the wire I would need to wire it to? I know the speedometer i want can be wired 3 different ways, half effect which is 3 wires, an inductive sender which is 2 wires, and the electronic control box which is one wire...so in order to make the aftermarket speedometer work, just tap into that wire? Im sorry for bugging you so much man Its just I HATE WIRING and the diagrams are sometimes complicated for me to read LOL
