Electronic Speedometer on a 91 YJ

I bought an electronic speedometer from autometer and can't figure out how to install it. The 91 YJ originally had a mechanical speedo, so the wiring harness has no wire for the speedo. But I put a new transfer case on which has an electronic sender. Summit has a sender, but I am not sure if it will work. It look like a mechanical to electronic adapter. It can be found here:

If this won't work, how do I go about hooking this badboy up?

Thanks

does the gauge manufacturer not make a harness for it?
electronic speedo's work off a pulse system i think, and you would need to match the pulses to the gauge.
otherwise the cheapest option would be to trace the wiring for an electronic speedo in the shop manual.....basically it needs a power feed, then the wire to the gauge. there will be wire(s) to the ecm also, but you will prob b ok to bypass these, as they would mainly be used for the cruise, auto tranny etc.
