Exclamation Speedometer & Odometer Not Working

I have a 1996 Ranger 4.0 4x4. Originally had the 4r55e, but I swapped in a M5R1. After the swap, the speedo & Odometer no longer work correctly. The Odometer records mileage but at a VERY slow rate. (4 miles recorded in at least 1000 actual miles).
Both speed sensors are brand new, and the gauge cluster is not the issue since I tried a different cluster that I knew was operative. Fuses look good, so no problem there. I'm guessing it could be the wiring? I looked at it but didn't see any issues. I have a multimeter but don't know exactly what I should be checking for.

Mine did that and it was the abs/speed sensor on the rear axel. It's in the middle on top of the pumpkin. If I remember around 30 dollars at auto zone. Super easy change only one bolt, but it was a bit of a pain pulling it out.

Just saw the rest of the post... Lol could be the wires check for continuity while moving the wires. You could have a short somewhere.

Did you get your speedometer issue fixed? What was the fix? I have a 98 with the same problem.
