Default 1985 Gauge Cluster Ribbon Restoration Question

Does anyone know what part number is on the cluster ribbon for a 1985 140mph dash cluster? Is it the same ribbon used on the 85mph cluster?

Here is the part number from a ribbon I pulled from a 85 LX 140MPH cluster. E4ZF-10C956-AA Not sure if its the same as a 85MPH ribbon but I would think it is. Hope this helps.

FordV8, thank you. It is the same part number on an 85mph cluster I just acquired. Im going to try to swap the ribbons to see if I can fix my cluster. I appreciate your quick response.

The speedometer is bolted to the rear half of the cluster housing and connects directly to the speedometer cable. It does not attach to or use the flexible circuit board whatsoever.
