What year/engine is your car? 1979-93 cars with EFI or cruise control have a cable or speed sensor. If it is a carbureted car without cruise, it could be the cable. The drive gears in the transmission could also be worn and can be easily replaced.

They're all the same, with one caveat. An example of one:

The caveat: If your Fox is an *early* one (83-86) and does *NOT* have cruise control, the cable is apparently different:

Probably a length issue.

I'm sure your sender (the gear on the transmission end) is good, but just in case:

And finally, just for grins, all things speedometer cable for an '83 or thereabouts:

You might also check American Muscle, LMR, Ebay and Amazon, and if a vendor chimes in, them maybe, and of course you probably could go to a Ford dealer and get the things there.

Hope that helps, and good luck!

Hope that helps.
