Keep an eye out for me too. I have the same problem with the indash
computer on my (wife's) 84 5000S turbo. The LCD itself is fine, but one
of the very special (surface mount) IC's that drives it has a bad output.
I hate it when I can't tell 0's from 8's. It also screws up all the 
other displays (like MPG, Miles till empty, etc)
