    parts stores have them . thats about it these days. thay are all basicly china junk.

    or find a good used one local junk yard.

    no bad to change on those trucks also. i have done a few on them.

    i would pull the dash cluster out and test drive it and watch the cable spin first. might be a bad speedo head. i have one in my truck now. changed cable and checked tcase gear. all good so i need to change speedo head.

    good site for these old solid axle trucks is www.ck5.com
