Happen to have pictures to see what it is supposed to look at?
I don't have any pictures off hand. If you Google image "90-91 suburban electronic speedometer"......you can get an idea of what they look like. Main thing is that it has the circuit board on the back (like on the first page of this thread) rather than the cable connection. Also, I'm far from an expert.....but it seems that the electronic speedometer has the word "Quartz" on the face and resolution to the nearest mph.....rather than in 5mph increments.

It would have been a non "e" then known as a 700r4
Correct. 90-91 Suburbans and Blazers had the 700r4 with a VSS signal generator rather than traditional Speedo gears in the tailshaft housing.

When I posted the comment that you quoted 2 years ago........the transition period between the 700r4 and 4l60e was a little less clear to me.

Hi I have been looking this thread up and down wanting to do this conversation. Love the original interior look. What I can't find is what the donor speedo looks like.
Thanks. I guess I'll chime in and state the obvious and say the first post of this thread with ALL of the HIGHLY DETAILED pictures has what you're looking for... ;)

hello, sorry to bring up an old thread but i'm doing my first ls swap and i've been reading and doing all kinds of things to get my monte running. i found all the pieces to make my cluster just like this but i have a dumb question. the wire you solder to the speedo, where did you get/what was it from. thanks
That is a piece of wire I had laying around so I could plug it into the car dash harness, that way it was not permanently wired to the car in case I had to remove the cluster.

There was nothing said about the word "quartz" on the donor speedo. Yes we see the guts from the back of the speedo, but I always seem to get the wrong part if I dont see the actual part. 😊 this is the first thing I'm doing this off season Built6spdmcss, thanks to you. In addition, I'll be updating the lights to the LED with new sockets. Pics to follow when I'm done.
