Default gauge needles out of place

when i pulled my cluster out i took off the needles and forgot to mark where they sit. I got my speedometer on track, but my battery gauge is off along with my oil pressure and temp gauge. my tachometer is a little off and its really jumpy.

i was wondering how i can put the needles back on in the right place. I figure i would fill my gas tank up and put it on full so that would take care of that. but the rest i dont know.

I was wondering if someone could take a picture of there 89 f150 gauges and i could go off that. any other ideas?

Probably going to have to go from memory. See how far off from what they usually are and adjust to that. They're not all that accurate anyways, the needle moves off the spot you're used to seeing it at only when there's a problem.

You can ground the sender wires to max out the gauge. It will got up or down depending on the gauge. Just figure out which way it goes and pop the needle on at the stop.
