    Check for any loose connections and your speed sensor cable on the tranny

        As mentioned check the connection to the speed sensor first, then the connections on the back of the cluster and if those fail bring the cluster to my dad's shop in town (Mr Whizard) to see if he can find anything wrong with it.

            Can your dad calibrate speedos? Example, changing tire size will cause a percentage of change in relation to the speed shown, acutal 108km/h instead of 100km/h... or the speedo is magically out.
