How Fast Am I Going?

On my recently acquired 1993 Cummins, the speedometer doesn't work. The sending unit at the t-case is hooked up. I hooked a slow drill up to the sending unit. Nothing. Where should I start checking?

The plastic gears behind the speedo and in the transfer case could be bad, mine was compleatly stripped, and possibly check the pcm, it might be going bad

What is the pcm? When I hook a drill to the sending unit (acts like gears in t-case) nothing happens.

The pcm, I don't denver what it stands for, is kinda like a brain, its in the left front fender by the battery and horns check the sticky on how to test it, and if it checks out then its probably the gears behind the speedo, sticky also has info on repairing and sourcing the gears
