speedo bouncing 1996 explorer

1996 Explorer Sport 4WD.

I am having an occasional bouncing needle on my speedo, reading below the
speed it is supposed to.

I have had the dashboard cluster out of this vehicle before, and I seem to
recall the speedo having an electrical connection rather than a cable, but
my memory is a lttle fuzzy on this.

Would this be a case of a worn cog someplace, perhaps at the transfer case.
The cog in the transfer case looked pretty good when I checked it 50K or so,
but it is as old as the car is now.

Any thoughts?

Paul

Re: speedo bouncing 1996 explorer

Perhaps unrelated is that cruise control operates in a rather binary fashion
now. In that it will accelerate hard for a couple of seconds, then slow down
hard for a couple of seconds. Repeat this ad-infinitum. Not as smooth as the
cruise used to be. Related????
