Not a big fan of belt lube either. Inspect the belt for cracks on the ribbed side and replace as needed. If you take it of be sure to check the tensioner, and all the pilleys for noise and resistance.
As far as the tach it is electric. So start by looking at fues, wires, and connections.
Good hunting and let us know. :)
