The speedo is held to the cluster by 3 or 4 screws. If it has a trip odometer that knob and cable will need to be removed from the bottom dash edge too. Once the screws are out the speedo should pull back but it may need a bit of juggling to get the face out of the hole. Just be careful not to catch the needle on the edge of the cluster hole.

Here is a photo of the rear of an old cluster that I think BDeB posted some years ago. I marked the approximate screw locations with white circles but they are hard to see because of the rust. As I am sure you have already found out, there is not a lot of space back there and the wire loom may fight you too.

That one is a LOT surface rusted, and if it actually was removed from a parts car right before the photo was taken I would hate to see what the rest of the car looks like. Suspect it might have been on a dash long time removed and sitting in the weather.

The dash came from a 22nd Series Custom 8 that was originally from the Spokane area but sat outside on Anacortes Island on the US West Coast before being moved to central BC then Alberta where it was parted out. Lots of surface rust and pitted chrome but some parts still surprisingly good.
