Gauges Dont work

On my 90 camaro which was originally a RS now has a 350 the only gauge that works is the battery volt. It appears to have a manual driven speedo as i can see a cable running from trans area up into where the cluster would be. I do have 89 camaro with all working gauges and from what i see i could transfer it over i just wunna make sure before i go tearing stuff apart or what connections i can check to see whats wrong with my gauges.

Also on a side note the guy told me it had a side cluster up by the door but someone stole it so im gunna trace the wire that ran to it and see where t goes but if anyone knows if i can do this please tell me

I din't know about the trade between 89 & 90, but have you checked the fuses to see if the power supply has been cut? I think the speedo cable drives a pulse generator in the dash so it would need a 12 volt supply. It may have blown when the other cluster was borrowed on long tern loan. Good Luck
