I think that the pictures of the wheel, the little round magnet (.5" dia) and the sensor (1.25" long) should come through. We'll see!

Forgot to mention: the magnet has to be installed on the wheel somewhere and the sensor has to be mounted so that it is about 1 mm from the magnet each time the magnet passes by it.

Here is what i did just last night. Have not tied down wiring yet.

Cannot tell from your pics if you can connect the same or not.
I used some J-B Weld. Hope it works.

I had to spice in some extra length of wire to get it to reach the dash.

That's similar to what I have in mind but think that I may have to dream up some kind of and extension with the sensor glue to it in order to get it close enough to the magnet.
Thanks.
