post nutter clean-up question. 2 x RPMs?

I performed the nutter bypass a while ago. The '85 CJ runs much better. After much procrastination, I finally did a clean up of all the un-needed wires. While it looks much better and still runs well, the tachometer now seems to be about twice as high as it should be. No CJ can run at 6,000 RPMs - ever. What did I do wrong?

Welcome to the Forum.

If you fill in your profile you will get more specific answers, still wrong but specifically wrong.

Is it 4 or 6 cylinder?

Have you got the original tach?

It's a 6 cylinder with an original tack. In playing around a little more, I've noticed that when I turn the key off, the engine sometimes continues to run for a second before turning off. Perhaps I removed some sort of capacitor?
