Ok I went out and bought a used gauge cluster out of an 87, and It had a working speedometer when i got it (plus the odometer gear was still intact so yay for that) and I swapped the speedometer guts into my gauge cluster (i wanted to keep my cluster because I have the grey market cluster, with the liter/hr gauge and i dont have a shift light like the american ones do) but the speedo still doesnt work. Where do i start searching for grounds around there? I have to do a wire test or something, because this is drivin me crazy and I cant figure it out. I checked the circuit board on the back of the speedometer and all the solder joints turn out good. If the grounds are secure, what else can be wrong? The plastic wire stuff on the back of the gauge cluster?
