No tach bounce would be a good sign that you have a bad reference sensor. Generally, it will be the one in the front. Look at the back of the engine, behind the intake manifold. You will see where the reference sensors plug in along with the O2 sensor, in a bracket bolted to the manifold (assuming it's still there). Follow the two wires down into the back of the engine. You'll see a square hole over the flywheel to view top dead center marks right by the reference sensors. They have a tall 10 mm bolt. If they have never been out, they can be a pain, and sometimes break. Spray some PB Blaster on them and let them soak. Wiggle them slowly until you can pull them.
