I have an instrument cluster in MINT condition out of a 1979 Subaru GL wagon. Cluster is 9.9/10, really really great shape.

Just an fyi. I bought this from him after he posted it. I've been using it for a while now and ever since I installed it the odometer doesn't really work. Everything else does just fine though. NOW his user name starts to make a bit more sense to me. 1 post (to sell his "mint" cluster), with a username of "brokenodo", short for "broken odometer" I assume. Would have been nice if it wasn't broken, but oh well.

Would you know of a place I could send it out to and have it repaired?

I was looking at these guys because my speedo bounces real bad. Looks like they do repairs, call em up.

That's kinda funny, I missed the user name.  Sorry about your purchase spicy, but if you can install the cluster you can take it apart too.  Not too hard, just take a peak inside and see whats going on.  Maybe a stripped gear, but more likely it just fell apart and can be reassembled.

Thanks, I thought maybe I did something at first to break it. Would you happen to have any resources (links, pics, etc) to see what I should be watching out for?

I swapped the entire odometer/speedometer module from a 120mph non-tach cluster to one of these tach clusters and the only issue was moving the trip meter reset hardware over (3 screws for it), so you might just be able to recover your previous odometer. You could even take apart the speedo module and replace whatever gear is broken on the odometer drivetrain.

So I took apart both of my clusters and canabalized one of them to get the gear out of it that wasn't broken.

In these pictures you can see the broken gear.

I was able to cut the plastic tip enough to pop it into the other speedometer housing. And voila! It works! I'm going to try to buy another full speedometer though so I have a spare.
