erratic guages

The temp guage on my '84 300SD fluctuates wildly. When driving it will shoot up to 100 degrees and stay there. If I bring my fist slamming down on the dashboard (OUCH!) it will return to just above 80 for a bit then back up to 100. The dealer replaced the cluster and cleaned the contacts but the problem keeps happening. The engine temp is normal.
Old age and treachery will allways overcome youth and skill!
