Temp guage

ok guys, since you have a pefect score on my issues I thought I would play "stump the gurus" again!

Heres my problem, my temp guage flutters.. if I tap on it it stops used:
Also, i read on here that if my tach has the support pin that it was a VDO, but the face plate on my car says moto meter, what do I have?

It's a moto meter with VDO guts, the tachs don't interchange the VDO has pins that go into the board, the moto meter has pins in the board that go into the tach.

If you can make the temp guage stop with a tap on the cluster, could be a dirty contact, or the guage itself. If its bad I may be able to get you one. Let me know.
