Tach acting wierd after replacing odometer gear (video inside)

Tach not working properly after replacing odometer gear - YouTube
I recently replaced my broken odometer gear. Before removing gauges all gauges worked fine(except odometer). After I re-installed gauges it seems all gauges on the right side are not as smooth and as accurate as they were before. The Speedo works great and as far as I can tell I have no issues with the fuel and water temp gauges.

As you can see in the video the needle seems stuck at a certain position until there is a significant change in needle position. So the needle is not smooth and not as accurate or as responsive as it should be. I've taken the gauges back apart and put back together several times to see if I could see or even fix the issue. I have no idea what is causing it. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

This is on my 98 GT
