For your speedometer, it could simply be the cable is broken. As for the tachometer, I would check the black cap unser the hood. Looking at the engine, over on the right hand side on the wheel well, you will see a round black plastic cap. If the cap is nice and tight, then the problem may be inside. There is a little trick you can do using a cigarette butt, or something similar. With the cap unscrewed, you can gently take the cap apart and insert a cigarette butt inside and put the cap back together. What happens to these is the connections get weak over the years and it's not staying seated properly. So by placing a butt or something similar behind it, applies pressure to keep in seated.
