Transmission problem
1990 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual 200+ miles

This truck has over 200,000 miles on it but in good shape. I had it painted last week and when I got it back I noticed that the speedometer was not working.I pulled the cable end out of the transmission, took the cable out, hooked up a drill to it and it operated the guage needle. I did the same with the gear back on the end of the cable. I replaced the speed sensor and reinstalled with the old driven gear. It worked sporadically for a few days but now does not work at all. What do you think the problem is?
