Speedo Not workin

Well when i bought my truck last year the oringal rear axle needed a new pinon bearing and posi among other things. The shops wanted $1200 for that job. So i ended up on putting a rear axle out of a 1993 F250 with 163kms on it.(Sterling 10.25") It had 4.10s and the posi was still reasonbly tight.

It bolted in no prob and is still working fine todate. But the speedo doesnt work now. I got a new connector for the VSS on the axle but still wont show how fast im going. Kinda annoying. Any ideas on how i would fix it? I kinda would like to know how fast im going by looking at my guages.

its held in by a o ring. Put a flat head screw driver between the VSS and the axle and pry the VSS up. It should just Pop right out
