Try swapping the gauges to see if itís the gauge or an issue of the signal getting to the gauge. You can also use a handheld digital tach to verify rpms.

Check all the wires are tight.

try cleaning the connections in the back. The gauge has 3 threaded poles in the back and the wiring harness is push on. Wire brush the poles then apply some dielectric grease.
