Speedometer cluster or circuit ribbon?

Okay, I have searched all over the web with very little luck. As stated in an earlier thread of mine I have a corroded circuit board/ribbon in the speedometer/tach cluster and have no lights that work. This thing is in bad shape. I'm having a hard time locating the board/ribbon, where would I find this? Is this a dealer item only?

Or, should I just keep beating the bushes until I find a used cluster?

Help! Thanks.

This looks like your best bet.
The dealer wants $255 just for the printed circuit.

krd- Thanks I saw that in m search. I have a feeling the two bidders already after that are going to get into a bidding war. I was hoping to find one listed somewhere else. There is another one on ebay, but the sellers feedback is terrible and they don't do paypal. Both red flags for me.

pat- Thanks for that info. I was wondering how much they got for that. I'll keep looking for a replacement cluster.

Is the any way to swap in a newer cluster? Any write ups?

Thanks guys.

"Flexible Circuit Panel" 'bout three yrs ago at CollinsBros, $45. Keep searching here on j_f_ yj section, may want to go back further in time. Will be plenty of guidance, how did mine.

Being in Michigan (Car Parts Heaven) you should be able to round one up from a boneyard.

Cannon- Thanks! I search with that.

pat- Thanks for the link, I'll check that out. I was thinking about checking out some of the "U Wrench It" places to see if anyone had a cluster.
