Nv5600 swap


Recommended Posts

I have a 99 that the auto took a dump. Got a really good deal on a NV5600 out of an '02. Hooking stuff up and noticed there is no provision for speed sense on the trans. Where does the 2002 get is speed sense from? Am I screwed with no speedo?:think:

All the trucks should get their speed sensor from the rear differential. There are three speed sensors, one rear diff, and two in the front hubs for ABS. I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure its not an issue.

Thx!!!! I thought the speed sensor was in the trans. The auto has some sensor in the place where a speedo gear would go, thought that was speed sense.Guess I was wrong.:woot:

Take care of that transmission with proper fluid and changes you should get a good long service life from it.

I plan on it. This truck isn't getting another one. LOL I would change the 5 speed all day long before doing this heavy sob again!!!!

I had a family gathering when I did mine. Grandsons, son, brother, and it was my wife's size 5 shoe that nudged it in on the second try. Clunk and it mated almost perfectly. Still, having the behemoth raised that high under the truck was a bit unnerving on a floor jack.
