can you pull the speedo needle out slightly? is there any resistance if you use your finger and try to move it though its range?

its not getting caught on the overlays at all...and the tach works, and the whole cluster is getting power, which is why I'm wondering about this...does anyone have a link to the article about re-calibrating the speedometer that Isaac wrote?...maybe that will help...also, I checked the pins in the harnesses in the back and I didn't bend anything...so that's out

ok try this, unplug your cluster. Now open your Hood, turn your engine on. There is a plug that is capped somewhere aound you battery i think...i forget it's exact location, plug it in there, have someone hold it and turn on the car. Rev it a coupla times, the needles should move. Now put it back in. Does this work??
