Default '89 Skylark restoration w/speedometer problems

Have replaced multiple items on my '89 Buick Skylark Custom, L4 2.5l, with about 190K on it'* existing instrument cluster. Having speedometer trouble and finally finding a speed sensor which seemed to help a little bit on the readout, does anyone out there know where I can get a good instrument cluster cheap for my year? This is the only thing I can narrow the problem down to-something is wrong with the needle. When I'm dring about 30mph, the needle is/was showing 65-80mph. Thanks!

Have you checked your local junkyards? If there'* none close by to you, you can always check out ebay or RockAuto Parts Catalog to try & locate a used instrument cluster......oh, and, welcome to the forum!
