Did you check the nuts used to secure(and provide signal to) the
coolant temp gauge?  I suppose they could rattle loose.  You might be
able to trace the connection...far as I know, it is a very direct
path between the harness connection and the gauge itself(at the
least, you might be able to wire a jumper to bypass a cracked trace
or something.)

Just for chuckles, remove the gauge itself(if you have the board
completely removed from the cluster, its just those two nuts) and
test it; THAT can certainly be swapped from any post-89 100 or 200
cluster(I would think.  Probably even more.)

Probably none of the above :-(
