I have the 93 Euro with the 3.4 with the cluster gages. Tach, speedometer, and trip odometer. A month ago the odometer stopped working and is apparently broken. I have tried to find a replacement for it but haven't been able to. Any idea how I could fix it or get a replacement?

Fords in that era are notorious for broken plastic gears in the assembly. If the Speedometer works and the odometer works but the trip odometer does not work, you can still have a broken or stripped plastic gear. They are very small and cost about $25 but they are a pain to replace. You can send your cluster off to have it repaired by a reputable shop. Just Google instrument cluster repair.
this sounds like a bad speedometer cluster, you stated everything else works so i assume the speedometer is working and just the odometer and trip stopped working and so the speedometer will need replacing. good day.
1. Check the resistance of the Output Shaft Speed (OSS) sensor. It should be 300-500 ohms.
2. If the resistance is out of range, replace the sensor.
1. With the key in the Lock position, push in and hold the trip odometer reset button until the word Sof and a number show up in the odometer display. This is the software version number of the cluster.
2. Release the button and the cluster will display codes in the odometer and run through the calibration points with the gauges.
3. Note any codes.
4. The cluster will exit the calibration when the word End is displayed on the odometer.
If the speedometer is working but not the odometer it's in the speedometer it's self. replacing the speedometer cluster is the easiest their available on ebay or your local salvage yard.
what happens is the trip odometer wears and sticks, theres a small motor on a circuit board with a plastic sun gear, inside the speedometer housing. it drives both the odometer and the trip odo
the teeth strip off the sun gear and odometer stops.

sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip
odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if
done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster)
into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the
gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer
does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the
speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then
further diagnostic will be needed.
Check the speed sensor in the transmission.
Being a 95 it might still be cable driven. Disconnect the cable from the transmission and hook a drill to it. Spin it and see if it registers. If it does, the gear going into the tranny is broken, if it doesn't the cable is probably broken.
