Bottom half of VSS replacement (Power Steering Speed Sensor?)

I'm going to the junkyard in the morning because i need to replace the bottom part of my VSS -- the mechanical part that inserts into the transmission with the gear on it. I can't find part info for it through 'Google shopping', so I'm hoping someone knows if there's any other Honda transmissions that have the same bolt-up pattern, same gearing, etc..
To be clear, I do NOT need the info for the top part of the VSS with the electrical connection

I found a thread on HT that suggested a 93 accord, but seemed inconclusive.

I have a '95 h22a1, American non-LSD tranny.

Thanks!

Here's a pic to accompany my inquiry;

I don't know how it happened, but the orange line represents where my VSS got sheared in half, so I need that component.

I know I gotta get the whole thing, I just need to know what car I can get it out of if I can't find a Prelude.

And also, will non-VTEC models or even automatic Preludes have the same one?

Re: Bottom half of VSS replacement (Power Steering Speed Sensor?)

my guess is that it was installed wrong. the gear on the vss wasnt properly meshed with the gear in the trans and when you or whoever installed it tightened it down, it snapped. i did that a while ago.
if you have no luck finding one locally, let me know.

Re: Bottom half of VSS replacement (Power Steering Speed Sensor?)

I found a '95 auto Prelude non-VTEC. The part that inserts into the tranny is longer than mine, and the gear is at a slightly different height. So now I'm going back to the junkyard to go through the plethora of Accords..

Can I let you know now ahead of time, and ask why you say that? :)

Re: Bottom half of VSS replacement (Power Steering Speed Sensor?)

Good news on the 2nd Junkyard run! First '94 Accord I looked at with a manual tranny had one, but it was broken in the exact same way! Found another standard '93, and it also matched up, same tooth count, same length. It's in my Prelude now and seems to be working like a charm for now. Got it for $17.50 :D


Thanks for lookin guys!
