does anyone know if YBE100530 hall effect sender will work with a LT77s/LT230 and a TD5 speedo?
It looks like it would work at the T/C case

Who has a Landy that goes fast enough to need an accurate speedo?

Part# for Connector

Does anyone have a part number for the connector that connects to the YBE100540 sender? It's supposed to be a male connector that fits into the female connector on the sender. I've searched ebay.uk but can't find anything there or in the parts manual. Thank you in advance for your kindness.

I don't think that will work with the YBE100540. See attached picture. It needs to be a female connector (?) that accepts two prongs into it.

I just remembered that those don't work, you have to use the 3 wire one and leave the center wire out.
If you look at the sender, there is a space between the spade like things. the stc1188 holes are too close together.

this explains it better.

I just found that thread that says it won't work. Sounds a little strange to use the 3 wire one. What do you do with the 3rd wire? Pull it out? Did you end up using the STC62071?

I got the plug from the link I added with the pigtails. I have one of those senders laying around somewhere and the extra plug I bought, I can confirm they work for you as far as mating.
I actually used the 3 wire hall effect in my truck.

You need the 3 wire plug with either sender. I have one here to prove it!! It is the normal late model stop light plug for Defenders, STC4637, easy to get from any normal Land Rover parts source.

For new, you should be able to get it a lot cheaper than that. The YBE100530 may be cheaper and is better built.

Alternatively, get one from a junkyard. There are many Discos in the junkyards.

I got mine from British Pacific. Can look up price. It was a great deal.

I'd give Will Tillery a ring (http://rovaguy.com/) or hit up Trevor @ Rovah Farm (http://rovahfarm.com/) when he reopens on the 15th. I've gotten some very nice prices on things from both of them.
