That link wont help since yours is a 94. I think your truck has a speedo cable that goes into a sensor box. Don't quote me on that though. Search the OHC threads for more info.

Your 94 does have a cable driven speedo but it also has a VSS sensor for the PCM and speed control. The VSS wire is gray/black and available at the speed control servo, at the PCM and at the sensor on the transmission or transfer case. There was no GEM on 94 and earlier Rangers.
