Default Signal for a electronic speedometer

Hi,
I am building a A Speedster.
I use all Gauges with the same design .
Now I need the signal for the electronic speedometer.
Does anymode have a solution?
I think, the only way is the position at the torqueTube, where the original cable driven speedometer is connected.
Here I can get the signal from a rotating cable or Pin and transfee it to a electronic signal.
Does anybody has a drawing of such a solution?

Thanks for help
Willi

Speedhut Gauges. has a speed sensor that screws directly onto the “turtle” and drives the electronic speedometer.
The speedo that they sell is calibraitable, and very slim body. Works great in the A dash panel.
Only available in 12v, neg ground
Been using them for years.

Excellent choice!!

Speedhut has a GPS speedometer also if interested in that. I have a Speedhut 2" 4000 RPM tach.
