i take it you have a level 1 cluster? the dash with just fuel speedo and temp?
i would suggest just buying a level 2 cluster for less than $50. this will give you a tacho and should fic your problems. having to thump the dash is a common problem and i think the only way to fix it is to do something to the voltage regulator inside the cluster.
if you want to go an extra step, get a level 3 cluster from a calais

what dash do you want to install, the level 2, or the level 3 calais dash? level 2 will just go straight in, but level 3 will require modifying the wiring, and im not sure how to do that on a VP. look around the wreckers for those clusters
