Thanks for the info. So your saying I should be able to remove the electrical plug and my mechanical gear on the end of my cable should go in then? Do I remove the gear from the cable? I will go out and give this a closer look tomorrow. A little confused. Thanks for clarifying the make. Care to guess the year? Internal slave .75 input shaft, electric speedo. Is 1991 correct? Thanks

Suppose I should merge the threads if they're the same.

If your old gear housing is on your speedo cable with the speedo gear still attached, it should pull right off. If the gear is a long shank speedo gear like the pic I posted above, it will work. The speedo gear in your donor is a long shank gear, so it would work as well. The only thing you are missing is the mechanical speedo gear housing like in the pic above. I am not 100% sure the electrical connection on top of the existing speedo gear housing will come off or not. It is worth a try to GENTLY try to remove it. Just don't break anything in the process. If it will not come off, you will need to locate a mechanical speedo gear housing like the pic I posted above. I am not sure about the AX15 year model, but a '91 seems feasible considering the speedo is electrical.

the electric will not just pull of.. The easiest way around this is to get an adapter for a 91 yj new from the parts store or go to a salvage yard and get a pre 91 adapter from a 231j transfer case.

I checked at Napa and they looked at me like I'm crazy. Don't see anything at AA either. Thanks

The salvage yard is probably the only place you will find one. Take the electrical one with you and look for the mechanical in early model YJs, and XJs. As long as the replacement is long shank and the same diameter as the electrical, it should work. I am not 100% sure about this, but the NP231c might provide the correct part as well. When you remove the speedo gear housing, grab the fork and bolt that hold it on. You will need those as well.

OP, I found this for you. It came from MeanMax, so it is correct.

All '92-'95 YJ models use an electronic speedometer which uses a VSS signal generated by the same type of gear drive as the cable operated mechanical speedometers used by previous versions. The speedometer gears have long & short shaft versions, depending on whether they are mechanical (long) or electronic (short) type systems.
The transfer cases are the same, and the different drive systems are interchangeable.
Also, the '91 YJ model is the only year that actually had BOTH types of drive gear. It was designed to drive a cable operated mechanical speedometer, AND to produce a VSS electronic signal for the PCM which the new MPI fuel injection systems required.

I just found this on Advance Adapters website. It seems they offer the housing as part of their transfer cases. The part at the top is what you are needing. You may want to give them a call and see if they would be willing to sell you one.
