Tachometer is not important, but it is cable driven on the 35 model. You have to physically inspect the cable, at the engine, to see if the cable is being turned at engine. If it turns at engine end, do to the tachometer head and remove the cable, and crank tractor, is cable turning? If cable is turning at the meter, the meter is bad.
