I put a TKO-500 into my 67 Cougar and also did an EFI conversion. My TKO came with a VSS that does not have an input for a speedometer cable that is located on the passenger side. It also has a mechanical speedometer cable input which my cable is plugged into. I also plugged my VSS connector from my Ron Francis harness into the passenger side VSS. How should my set up be? Do I just get the correct gear to make my speedometer read correct and stop bouncing around and get the correct gear for the VSS so my ECM reads correct?

I am using stock gauges with a stock speedometer.
My ECU does require a VSS for proper operation.

Couldn't I just very well buy the $15 VSS for the ECM which is an A9L?

I bought mine from Summit P/N: AWR-TCET4615
And it says that it has a 7 tooth.
Notes: Designed for electronic or mechanical speedometers (7-tooth). Holds 5.28 pints of fluid. 500 ft.-lbs. torque capacity.

Ok, so 7 tooth. You still need to know how many pulses your ECU is looking for and use the Dakota Digital box to give it what i wants.
