First, gotta be sure it is actually the tach that isn't functioning, as opposed to any of the wiring leading to it or the pulse generator.

If it is in fact a failed tach, there's a 50/50 chance of repairing it.

It involves removing the chrome cup (those two screws on the back) which leaves you with the white plastic tach body topped with a chrome ring holding in the glass/plastic.

I used a cutting wheel on my dremel to cut though the white plastic at a distance of about 1/2 inch from the chrome ring.

Oh, before you yank the pieces apart, remove any remaining screws on the base of the white body of the tach.

Gingerly, separate the cut halves of the cup.

I cleaned off all the points and connections, added a very itsy bitsy tiny drop of light sewing machine oil using a syringe, to the axel of the tach, down inside the guts.

I reassembled everything and epoxy'd the white cup back together, and put the chrome cup back on.

Works like new and you can't see any sign that I did surgery on it.

Sorry for the confusing description of the repair.

I have pics of the entire process, but won't be able to post them until monday.
