Find a complete instrument cluster for a 1990 Hardbody or Pathfinder that has what you need.

Unscrew yours, set it aside (important*), and put the replacement in it's spot.

Here's one on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/332456945670

The speedometer needle has been clipped, so you might be able to contact the seller to see if he'll sell for less.

* Just in case the new one doesn't work or you ever need to go back.

you can also take your odometer and put it in the new cluster so the miles are correct.
