Has anyone successfully used a sender other than the expensive and unreliable SW sender with a SW "Wings" electric speedometer? If so can you provide details so I can do the same?

OK, it looks like "problem solved". I bought the generic GM 3 wire, 8000 pulse per mile sender "a boner" on HAMB suggested

( s-electric-speedometer-se nder.1164717/}

from Summit Racing. I just checked it's accuracy and the odometer clicked off exactly 5 miles in a known 5 mile interval near my home that I used to calibrate the SW speedometer when I first got this roadster in 2003. It's cost is $33 compared to the $125 sender from SW plus another $18 for the square drive that is not included with the SW sender. So the SW part is more than 4x the cost of the generic part sold by Summit, Jegs and others.
