Speedo Probs With R33 Gearbox In R32

I just put an R33 RB26 with an R33 5 speed in my R32 GTS-T. Im wondering if anyone has had the following problem.

The speedo sender on the 33 gearbox is an electrical item, where as it was mechanical on the 32 gearbox; in wondering how to adapt one/both in order to make my speedo work. The sender in the 32 box wont fit in the 33 box because theyre a different length. Any help would be appreciated.

The only thing I can think of is are you able to change the guage? Maybe pull the cluster out and swap the speedo for an R33 one. Then you could use the 33 sender.

Where the speedometer cable goes into the gearbox, are you able to remove that section of the gearbox? is there like a housing for the speedo sender. I forget, it has been a few months and I didn't really play with the box much.

Thanks Daniel, I think i just found a solution. I contacted a guy in sydney who has a part that will connect the mechanical speedo cable to the electronic sender. I was just reading your post about the hicas problems with the 32 gtst; mine is doing the exact same thing; losing power assistance. This guy in sydney (Parramatta Nissan i think) said my problem is due to the hicas not sensing the cars speed (the speedo and/or another sensor on the gearbox not being connected at the moment), therefore i am losing power assistance. He said he sold this part to a guy last week who had the same problem and it fixed it. I should get it tomorrow so fingers crossed because its pissing me off!

That's great. It does make sense too. I'll tell the other guy, maybe his is doing the same.

    • OK, so, assuming that there is nothing wrong with either the original or new boost sensor, then it would seem that there might be something wrong in the loom wiring to that sensor. This is troublesome, because if that were true, then you might expect the problem to persist when the sensor was unplugged. But seeing as the voltage comes good when it is unplugged, it would suggest that the fault might (and I stress might) be right at the loom plug. Either that, or the fault might be at the ECU, on the line in from the boost sensor. When you unplug the boost sensor, that input at the ECU is isolated from the TPS sensor and can't affect it. This would be semi-bad, as an ECU problem is never welcome, but at least you'd know where the problem is and it might be fixable, or at least replaceable. Do you have Nistune, or any other way of looking at ECU data? I'd want to drive the car around with the boost sensor unplugged and see the TPS working properly, then not working properly with the sensor plugged back in. You're not trying to run more than ~18 psi either? Right? Because even with Nistune that can be difficult with the boost sensor connected. Just checking, in case it might have some bearing on the issue. It shouldn't cause the voltage situation you're seeing though.
    • Need something reliable, like a Mazda (non-rotary), or a Honda, or a .......... Commodore 🤣, the only issue with my cars is me 🫤
    • Then sell it and buy a BMW! I can totally relate to this (except the money part! ). I think for me I need to remind myself that I do enjoy the process and to stop being so damn impatient and eager to get it done. That just leads to frustration and broken stuff.  Built not bought. Wait.  Fixed, not fought? No ... Definitely fighting things. Definitely not fixed, I give up. Cars are pain.  
    • This week is the McLaren F1 GTR around Le Man.  I have a 3:48 ish I think (from memory) which is 2 secs off silver.  My issue is that I did a heap of the current daily race c around Le Man with the 787B first and switching to the McLaren is hard.
