Tach:  Check one of the small gauge wires at the distributor, one of 'em is the tach wire
Heater:  You need to replace the plastic heater valve.  It is about $17 and about 10 minutes to replace.
Short Shift:  Check out Blaufergnugen, I hear it is pretty good.  I am thinking of getting it myself
Shifter Bushings:  The ones at the shifter are pretty easy.  The one on the tranny at the end of the linkage is a beyotch!!! However, it makes a heck of a difference in the shifting.
