Default ABS clicking sound help

Hey guys i have a question about my ABS i think.

Its a 2000 ranger 2.5l 4 cyl. 2 wheel drive.

So ever since i got the truck its done this weird thing were it makes this Ticking sounds and you can fell the brake pedal jump a little bit.
and the ABS has never worked when it snows if i dont pump the break it wont take over and pump by its self.

My speedo as always never worked right it goes up to 60 mph and thats it even though i know im going faster then 60.
and help would be awesome its very annoying and i dont know much about trucks but i will get in there and take something apart if i have to.

I know nothing about abs but there are a few things I would check out;
Make sure the front end is solid ie; no loose bearings, ball joints, etc.
Make sure bearing seals aren't leaking, that could potentially cover the abs sensors and prevent proper operation. Get the front on jack stands and start playing with the wheels, spin them, shake them side to side, top and bottom while spinning, don't forget to turn the wheel and do this again. Your looking for the sounds you have been hearing. Walk outside the truck while someone else drives.
Check the wiring from the sensors to the computer, looking for fraying or any damage. If you know how, check for continuity.
Good luck,

kinda sounds like a bad abs pump but you didnt say if the abs light was on or check engine light if so go get it scanned by a place like auto zone for free
