It is usually the transistor that fails, and can easily be replaced if you are handy with a soldering iron.
During my apprenticeship days I worked on the E-Line transistor production line, so naturally I recommend them.
In the negative-earth tacho you can fit a PNP transistor ZTX550 and in a positive-earth tacho you need an NPN transistor ZTX450.
Good luck,
Philip
