Right need a definate answer to this now...

Valver engine with F20 Box

Corsa X-reg electro speedo

How do you get it to work? My transponder off my F13 had a hall effect sensor on it so supposedly wont work.
Tried a Astra GTE transponder and that's reading approx half what im doing.
Tried some alleged corsa one which was lying around a scrap yard and that was even further out... PIC...



I really DONT want to have to source mechanical clocks and run cable speedo, someone MUST have done this on a late Corsa B?

Doubt theres anything you can do without maybe pulling the gearbox to bits and fitting the electric parts

ive never seen one but i would assum the transducer just clips/screws onto the thing on the gearbox the speedo cable normally screws onto? and then converts the drive from the gearbox to an electrical signal?

the diff needs to come out and you take the ring gear off and put a trigger ring back on the diff either one out of a late vectra with an f20 or i had my diff machined so i could put my f13 trigger ring on it put it back together and bobs ya uncle n all that
