Speedometer repair

Heres the backbrief...bought an 84 with an 85 MPH speedometer-should have been a big give away that there was a problem. Anyways found a 130 MPH speedometer in the junkyard. So I got it and switched it, but I did'nt switch the odometer part (the guts) because I wanted the same miles that were already on the car. Want I wanted to know is on the cars with the 85 mph face are the back portions calibrated to that face plate? I know that tach off a celica to a supra would be off but the speed? Thanks

a semi related question...
i got a cluster from a celica, so im probably going to have to go find a different gear arent i?
due to the change from the 85mph speedo to 130mph.

ive got an 82 with 3.73s, but the same w58 tranny as the celica, do the rear end ratios play much of a difference with this speedo gear, or is it just transmission dependant.

id rather not tear my dash apart and discover that i need to drive down to the toyota shop and try to fool around getting the right gear.
