82' no RPM indication on the dashboard

There is no rpm indication on the dashboard. The other instruments are working properly.
Where the problem could be?

Your printed circuit board contact may have come loose. The contacts from the PCB to the indicator are secured with a screw. I pulled my pod and found several contact screws were very loose, almost as if someone deliberately loosened them hoping to force the previous owner to bring it back to the shop yet again after he paid them $1500 to replace the light bulbs in the pod.

Some receipts I've seen for dealer repairs are obscene.

Wow. It takes me less than 10 minutes to remove the pod. Maybe a little longer to put back on. How long does it take to replace a bulb. Jesus.

No wonder our wondrous cars have such a bad rep.

Yep. $1500 to replace the burned out bulbs in the pod, and to get the clock working again.

He was a preacher, thus a fool.
