190E/190D instrument clusters interchangeable?

I have a 1988 190D which needs a new instrument cluster (because the clock and odometer do not work). I found an instrument cluster on ebay for $20.00 from a 1986 190E. The seller sent me a pic, and it looks like his having an extra meter (a fuel efficiency guage) is the only difference.

I'm wondering if the clusters are interchangeable. I need to decide whether to buy this one from the 190E or to keep looking for one from a 190D.

Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Everything should work. Just make sure that the plugs the back of your cluster match the plugs on the back of that one. Don't worry about the economy gauge, its just a vacuum line and if you don't hook it up it will just read 0 all the time. Or you could take the cluster even further apart and use your good fuel/oil/water temp gauge, the speedo/odo from the new cluster and the new tach/clock as well.

Speedometer cable connection

Thanks, I suspected it would work. I'm a little confused about the dealer having said that it wouldn't be compatible because the cable hookup to the speedometer is a little different. I don't know what the attachement looks like on either one. Did I get some bad information?
