Any of our long term tech people have a good way to set up a bench test so I 
can figure out if the instrument cluster parts for pre-1992 are working?   I 
picked up a cluster from a w116 that could swap into my SL.   My clock does not 
function and the tach is slow.  Only spins up to 2500 top.  This replaced the 
nonworking clock with tach that would swing and pop all over but never tell the 

Speedo in this unit does spin up, but I think the odo is shot.  Stuck trip 
meter and the odo is not seeming to click over.   I need to check fuel gauge 
and temp.  If I can set up the test bench, I would be able to certify the other 
dozed clusters living on my parts shelf.
