    Is it the correct tach for the engine? Does the tach move at all when you drive, or does it just sit at one particular RPM while the engine is on?

    Check the wires and signal output, you should be able to find some info regarding that somewhere on the net i would think, check the wires that go into the cluster i just noticed on my 82 GT that some tabs that hold the wires into the connector have broken and i think thats why i lost tach signal on my car.
