Stick takes out speedo plugin

Got a 95 f-250 PS.5- speed. As I was driving this morning,I ran over a piece of a limb and the darn thing took out the plugin on the top of the diff housing. The housing part is OK, but the plastic plugin took it in the shorts. Question, can I just crimp on a new plugin, or is the wire used something special? I have a 94.5 f-350 donor rig in the back of our shop, so it would seem like an easy fix. Just not sure. Thanks!

I would replace the pigtail, but I would solder and heatshrink it over crimping it. It seems to be fairly finicky in that department. Cheers!

Thanks for the comeback. I will go out and test my soldering skills Mon.P.M. I just didn't know what type of wire they used,ie if it could be cut and spliced. Thanks again.

i don't think it's a resistance wire or coaxial or special in anyway it's just a hall effect sender

you will know shortly (no pun intended ) i would just wire nut it real quick to see before i spent the time on a permanent fix

If I recall, don't they run those wires as a twisted pair? Cheers!

Sorry about the delay, supposed to have a break in the weather today. Will crawl under donor rig and snip the plug-in to see what's up.

Finally snipped pig-tail from donor rig. Real easy fix. Color coded two- wire. Had some crimp on,heat shrink connectors. Put wire protector wrap plus good old electrical tape. Speedo,cruise control,odometer, all seem to working fine. Much ado about nothing I'm happy to report! By the way,Mr. Ford wanted 53 Bucks for lousy two wire pigtail!!!! What a rip. Donor rig pays off yet again. Thanks Guys.
