Thanks Ian.
But there is actually already an inbuilt electronic sensor on the MT75 gearbox (I have a Sierra based roadster). What I was looking for is either an electronic speedo which is compatible with my car, or a 90 cable-drive adapter to use my EOM cable driven speedo, because the bend it is doing on my is too tight and damages it along the way.
Thanks anyway

All the other ones I found are not for flanged cables...
Does anyone have another source for that?
You should be looking at a flange-thread adapter, like this:
It should not be able to get one made by someone with a lathe. I printed one on my 3d printer for the speedo hall sensor from a Mondeo (I made the plunge to VDO gauges with an electronic speedo. 5 gauges from ebay 50, the speedo 200). The standard thread for speedo drives is M18x1.5, just like oxygen sensors, etc. The disk might have a tab that would prevent it from spinning when you're trying to undo the thread.
