Looks like most of the pins have broken off and stayed in the multiplug. That would defo explain some issues with dash lights!! These older dashes can be very fragile in these areas so go with care from here to prevent further damsge.
Can someone please tell or show me what the back of the speedo should look like on my 77 royal? I think I've got a missing pin or 2 hence some iffy speedo lights when you wiggle the plug!
This is the side next to radio.

Unfortunately I think the problem you had just got a lot worse. It looks to me like about 7 of the pins that are suppose to be attached to the speedo are now torn off and stuck in the socket. I think you could attempt a repair but the speedo head is going to have to come out and you will likely have to do some soldiering. Not impossible but it's going to take some time. It's probably best to remove the speedo head any how do you can check all the builds and the bulb sockets (likely the source of the problem any how).
