Default 93 civic w/ 300k + miles

Alrighty here's the scoop on daughters car with the BOOM BOOM system, before it was drivable. It's drivable now. Replaced the radiator, fuel pump & filter, a distributor, a VSS and ECU. And it stilll would die with the engine light coming on and unable to restart until resetting the system by pulling the fuse. Started trouble shooting following the Haynes Repair Manual for code 15. And what I found was the new distrbutor was a rebuilt with a bad ICM. Took it back put the next distrbutor in (AFTER OHMNing OUT ALL THE MODULES IN IT) and the car is running as it should no problems in the engine or system. Still need to replace the Speedometer( it's rapped all the ways around and turns backwards after getting on the highway), plus replacing the CVC. then I think she'll have a desent car. Oh yeah, we can here coming home about 6 blocks away. Any hints on the busted Speedometer, is it a plugin type or do I have buy the dash cluster? Got the CVCs, going to install them as soon as I can shut her down for half a day.
