1973 450se odometer help

I recently purchased a 1973 450se but the odometer and trip meter aren't working at all. Not sure if they just are't hooked up or if there is a blown fuse or something. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Not a hard DIY repair either. Buy new gears odometergears.com. Check their website as well as do a search here for the procedure.
