Most likely will be a sticking pointer - pull the needle and try a drop of light oil to free up the indicator bearings.
Although first put your cluster in diagnostic mode http://www.fordmods.com/forums/documents.php?doc=12 , and check the digital speed follows the analogue pointer - if it's smooth and consistent, your analogue gauge is suspect, if it's intermittent and not giving smooth readings (just like the speedo), then you may have an issue with the speed sensor (or the connecting wiring) on the gearbox.

thanks heaps that was a great help. well i think that it is an intermittent problem. it all seemed to work fine though when i did it.

That is a cool thing that ford did. i like it. fords are so much better than holden together
