replacing instrumetation cluster 126 300SD 88

Hi guys!

a new member here. My name is david. I m in the past a benz enthusiasts owning old type of benzes, 107, 115, 116, fintail, 450SLC and stopped being an enthusiast for a few years, though Im still just lurking behind and still scouting for benzes. Well just yesterday I got me a newly acquired 126 300 SD turbo Diesel 88. Well I gues like all of you, Im quite excited to start tincturing with her to get her back into her prestine condition. Im starting with the instrumentation cluster. For a 23 year old car, its fancinating that she's still has the classy appeal and head turner. Before I start rambling on, my inquiry is how or where could I get a decent functional instrumentation cluster even second hand would do as long as all of the instruments are working. With this new acquisition, I just found out that due to age, the gears inside the speedometer cable has crumbled like biscuit! No way of repairing. So right now Im in search of the instrumentation cluster to replace the old one. Anyone who could guide me directions where I could get one??? Thank you very much.

ps. By the way Im here in Manila Philippines.

Smile Welcome!

Welcome to our crazy little forum Mr. Metalgear. =)

And you are so lucky to live in beautiful Manila, a city I would love to visit someday, as I have many Filipino friends and they always tell me how wonderful their country is, and that they have great food too, as they know I love to =)

I found quite a few instrument clusters for sale on ebay, and here is a link to them:
