    My Tacho has been playing up intermittently so finally had enough and pulled the instruments out and off to the repair specialist who said that the usual culprit is the printed circuit.

    As my shift light is wired into the tacho harness it should behave once more when everything is fixed and back in place.

    Apparently the tacho feed is from the aftermarket computer and not the coils so it's off to my engine builder who installed it.

    Was watching Mighty Car Mods and they have been working on an old Nissan. As they were tearing the wiring out to put a stereo kit in they found the old wiring to be rotten and broken in many places.
    Could your problem be old corroded wiring that is hidden behind panels or bulkheads?

    Gremlin tracked down and found :) It turned out to be the faulty MSD Tach Adapter that was affected by heat over many years even though it was on the inlet side of the motor fixed to the inner guard so the replacement has been relocated further away.
