So yesterday on the way home the speedo did not work at all. No odometer either. Hopefully, tonight I will be able to at least check the cable. I had replaced it 2 years ago due to noise. I leave it outside at work, ALWAYS under a cover. Occasionally, I put it in a shed we have if it rains or on the hottest days. So direct sunlight does not ever get to it. The cover has faded quite a bit, and I shudder to think what everything would look like if I did not do that.

Windshield is a Tulsa tall.

I will try letting it run without moving to see if the tach will just jump up. I know I have seen it come up by simply revving it, but it does not work every time. So I just start moving and very shortly, it will start working. Doesn't take long to get a little vibration or bump for it to start up.
