Need Info on intalling speed sensor asap...

I need to replace the speed sensor on my 1987 ford mustang 5.0L lx. Have no idea where to start. How do I replace, an is it a hard job? I am currently working on my car, an wanted to go ahead an change while doing so, if it's a hard job I will wait, but just need to know how. Thanks,

A 7/16" wrench will do the trick

It's real easy. Just held in with one bolt I believe. At least it is on the A4LDE.

I thought 87's didn't have VSS? My 88 doesn't and even after my Mass Air Conversion it wasn't necessary.
