Thanks for the help eureka, this should make life eaiser. And to help everyone else out here is what I have found.
Adapts a stock Vanagon speedometer to accept the VSS Sensor in place of the stock cruise controlhttp://www.customoffroad.com.au/partFull.asp?partid=99
Pugs straight into any VW speedo and Cable with a VDO Speed Sensor for the ECU signal
the VDO part number is 412.009
$150 AUD, $135 USD?
(this seems like the best solution)
Similar products available from Summit Racing in the US
Arthur Allen Hall Effect Transducer
Universal AA-1470 Euro 7/8 used in vehicles such as Mack MS250
I am told that this will work as well but havenít seen it used
Some people talk about putting magents on the CVs and making there own system with stock suby parts. I dont trust myself enough to go that way but for someone else that might work.
There you go, Mike [1 edits; Last edit by SportyBug at 19:48:47 Fri Nov 19 2004]
