temperature gauge isn't working

hey guys,

well i finally got the car started, everything is working great except for the temp gauge. I was looking through the wiring diagram and its basically connected to the coolant temperature sender. Can that be bad or is it more likely the electrical board? Any thoughts would be helpful.

let it warm up then tap on the lens gently
works on mine.needle sticks if thats it not sure best way to fix? open and lube? replace VDO gauge?
otherwise the temp sensor not the one that feeds the ecu
cant remember if its on the block or radiator
careful brass is soft
