Here's one for the trivia experts out there:

I think the speed sensor in my '83 is bad (no odo, no speedo, no fuel economy estimate), but I have a friend with a couple AODs that have speed sensors. Since the '83 has an AOD... are all AOD vehicle speed sensors the same? I realize the gear ratio would be different, so assuming the gear in my car is okay, could I just pull the sensor out of another AOD and put my car's gear on it?

If it makes any difference, the '83 has digital gauges and the TripMinder.

Thanks in advance!

well it depends on which part is bad...there is a gear on the trans output shaft, and a gear that is hooked to your speedo. The external one is the easily replaceable one. You need to pull the speed sensor off and check the gear and see what it looks like.
