tach problem

not exactly sure if this is normal but i think my tachometer is not correct. at idle 1.6k and the rev limit is about 2k or so over redline. it was like this when i bought it so nothing i did caused it. is this normal easy fix or something broken thanks

hi ya

Sounds abit strange, i take it the car sounds like its idling ok and not at 1600 rpm.
take a picture of the rev counter with he engine off and at idle, i wonder if someone has been playing with it ether to change the bulbs or the dial dial.
the only other thing i can suggest is find one on ebay cheep and swap it over
