I know the speedo/tach will NOT work from the '84- later ('85-'87) 
models.  They look almost *exactly* the same, but it seems that the 
electronic "wiring", the little integrated circuit that runs along the 
back of the cluster is *very* different.  I tried this, as I needed a new 
speedo, and everything bolts right into place, but when I connected the 
wires, warning lights and things started blinking when the ignition was 
OFF!  They look the same, but be careful of the wiring.  Something as 
simple as the clock might work though.  Physically they should be the same.
