    I've got a problem with my tach on my 95 gt. It won't move under idle but as soon as I give it a quick rev the tach needle moves...but counter clockwise.
    How does the tach work...is it mechanical or does it work using a signal.
    whats wrong with mine?

    Thanks,
    John

    sounds like a faulty ground or signal wire. Check all your ignition wires under the hood (not plug wires but the ignition system wires to the dizzy and coil.)

    do you think it might be the gauge itself?
