When you did you TC drivetrain swap what happened with the speedometer? Considering TCs have electronic and im sure your 84 had cable.

supercab78 is correct on the housing width being the same between the Fox Mustangs and the 87-88TC 8.8 rear ends. The axles on the TCs are 3/4" longer.

On the speedo, the trans is the same. The speedo driven gear has an electrical connector on it, instead of the cable attachment.

Thanks everyone I had no idea it was as simple as changing out the sensor. I talked to somebody who ran a 92 mustang sensor which had a spot for cable as well as electrical connector (which he used on his pimp)
