Sigh! Now my 92 is giving me issues. The brakes have never been quite right, but now the speedo quit. Too much to do and no time to do it right now.

I don't remember the speed sensor being on the transfer case but I see it here in the manual...in the output housing. I had to replace the one in Rastus once.

Youre right Clunk, I was thinking of the 4x4 switch I replaced last winter, but I still have replaced the speed sensor a few times. Over a $100. each time.

Either that or the adapter. I've gone through a few of them sense I got up here. Can't keep the condensation out of them.

I've even wrapped the living crap outta them to keep the moisture and snow, salt, rain, mud, molten lava outta it, and they still go for a crap after a couple of years.

Got another VSS. When (if) it stops raining, I'll wiggle under there and check things out.

Just under $50 US at Napa. That was the culprit, the adapter was fine.
Now back to the brakes. No symptom that will narrow it down. Not sure if it is the ABS valve or another bad OH master cylinder (on #3).
A new MC is $83, an overhauled ABS valve is $260 locally. I can mail order them cheaper from the lower 48.
The brakes were bad when I bought the truck, really bad.
The first shop did a real crappy job on the brakes and it had to be done again.
This time it got new rotors and pads and new drums, shoes, hardware, and one wheel cylinder. And the master cylinder was replaced with an overhaul, then another one, then another one. At least the last one was better than the others, but I still question it. All the fluid was replaced and I bleed the brakes again last weekend. No air came out.
Here is what it does.
The peddle starts out firm then gets soft. If you hold hard pressure on it, it very very slowly goes down. Getting soft makes me think the ABS accumulator is stuck open or leaking. The peddle going down make me think master cylinder on the rear brake side only. Then again, you can pump the brakes up and it gets firm again. And yes, with my big feet I can hit the floor.
