I've been trying to find out about the speedo cluster connector myself, and have come up dry each time. It's a weird connector having 2 rows of 8, flat-ish 0.025 x 0.040" pins on 0.100" x 0.200" centers. I ended up making my own using two Molex socket strips glued back to back.

The headlight sockets are standard items you can buy at any auto parts store for a few dollars.

Being an electronics design engineer for a few decades, one tends to accumulate samples that factory reps leave behind. The Molex connectors I used were ones that I had kicking around my lab, so I don't have the exact part number handy.

However, have a look at the following links to get an idea of the type of Molex connector I used:

They come in various styles, and the ones I used were like the ones in the second link. I cut off the mounting ears and glued two of them back to back. Then I soldered the connectors to a small circuit board (though I could just as easily soldered the wires directly to the pins, and heat-shrunk them. Worked like a charm.
