Intermittent speedometer and steering wheel issue

Hi!

I currently own a 1995 nissan 300zx NA manual. My cars speedometer recently stopped working and the steering wheel stiffened up. I took it to a Z mechanic and he said the clutch was very bad and i had it replaced. He didn't repair any of the speedometer issues and simply mentioned that i should replace the speedometer.

On the drive back home, the speedometer would randomly start working at higher speeds and would intermittently drops off. The steering wheel will stiffen periodically. No engine light, no other issues. I'm not sure where to start. Could anyone please point me in the right direction? Thank you!

Similar thing happen to my 1990, turns out to be a bad speed sensor which bolts to the transmission. Also of course could be the wiring to the sensor.
Search this forum for "speed sensor" and you will see a ton of info on it.
