Look for a wire coming off your alternator that runs to the tachometer.
This wire is likely not very well connected - electrically or mechanically.
The alternator provides the engine rpm information to the guage.
Have seen this before on a friends universal diesel.
When the wire is disconnected the tach seems dead. Could also be a short along that wire.
