Default sc400 (97) GTE 6spd (speedometer not working)

the 97 sc400 has a 6spd GTE swap and it starts runs etc ok... the TACH works but the speedometer doesn't work and doesn't read speed at all.

any idea where I can start looking, change or fix?

I have a 92 SC300 that I swapped over to GTE.....I have tried everything to get my speedo to work.....i.e new speed sensor......checked wiring over a dozen times per wiring diagrams.....I am thinking that the actual gauge itself is shot....
