82 300TD. The odometer works intermittently. I see the problem. At 'tickover' at the point where nine changes back to zero on the tripmeter, there's a little bit of resistance in the mechanism (a small drop of gun oil didn't work) and the gray gear buried in the inside of the cluster slips on the shaft. (the W123 odo is unlike the S odo)

So. I think I'm looking at a new speedo/odo. Will the 120mph models out of later cars simply drop in to replace my 80mph model? Were there odo drive gear changes at the other end of the speedometer cable as well?

TIA!
