    I had this problem once before but I can't remember what I did. The 160 clocks are not cable like the old ones, I think I had to run a wire from the ABS unit to the clocks to get it to work. I can't remember the colour though. Heds who is a member on here has done this a few times to his Mk3 Astras, try asking him.

    Vauxhalls are generally Red/Blue and you can pick it up on the factory radio harness

    Not sure if having a engine conversion will chnage anything though

    The V6 clocks are all Electronic, and get the speed signal from the ABS.

    You can use a GTE AK 16 impulse sender to get a reasonable speed indication.

    Or this, if you have the later 29 tooth ABS.
