Tacho feed comes from the coil. I had this problem and found it was a dirty/loose connection from my pertronix to the coil.
Unplug all the ignition connectors and give them a clean. Check the bolts on the back of the coil are all tight.

And whats the best way to wet the joints if this is the problem?
if your refering to the connections that have dried out on the cluster,
they will need to be re soldered.


just for a bit of refference,
i just had my GQ cluster 'refurbished' and new senders put in and it cost me $400.
