Speedo cable mount / connector?

Hey Guys,
So I have been in need of a minor victory with my D90 seeing as I'm not having a ton of luck with my over-heating problems. The speedo on my truck has been disconnected since I got it, so I figured it was an easy target. I finally located where it connects on the transfer case. There was a transceiver connected, it's from a Disco, and I managed to get it off. But I think that I need a part to allow me to hook the cable into the t-case. I have the old manual speedo, not the electronic version. When I removed the transceiver I'm left with just the opening and nothing else. The picture I have attached is not of my truck, it's someonelse's , but it shows a what I believe I need. I have no idea what the part name is, therefore I can't find it. The manual for the LT230 only lists the transceiver. Any info / help is greatly appreciated.

Given you'll have to buy something to get this going ... why not upgrade the speedo to an electric one? They are $115 from egauges.com.

Kinda hoping that this would be a $5 fix.

I have something like this on mine ... although yours being an 84 is probably a bit different ...

you just need a cable speedo drive. The electric one simply pries out. The cable type also has a cable retainer and a small bolt that hold it all together. Not sure you can find the stuff for $5 but should be readily available. Try Pushngo/ Randy Williams on this site and disco web. He parts Rovers out for a living is just outside Hershey and can probably fix you up quick.
