Default Re: 97 SW2 Manual RPM's rev up while Hwy driving in 5th gear.

My original instrument cluster in mine would have the rpm's randomly jump a bit, I think it was the stepper motor getting stuck, or something slightly jamming the needle. I swapped out clusters for another one and the problem went away.

As indicated above, in 5th gear and press the throttle to the floor, if the rpm's smoothly rise above what you think they should, most likely clutch, but if the tach jumps suddenly or is twitchy, it's something else - electrical or cluster
