    So my odometer and trip quit, so I bought the gears and fixed it. Then this morning they both work, but now the tach is on the fritz. It kinda jumps to a few positions or stays at 2k. I may have touched or moved the needle. Which I can now see is a No No. Am I screwed? Any ideas?

    Did you push the needle down on the face by any chance? If that happened, you can pull it back up into position, but if it bent the arm the needle is on, yeah that's a no no

    Not down. I might have just moved it, but it seemed to move freely

    Barner, you were right. The needle was pushed down. Apparently I set the gage pod upside down and also broke the little pegs that hold the needles at rest. So the tach works now, after I pulled it out. Hopefully it dosen't matter that I broke the rests for the needles. Thanks
