Isnt the link above for recalibrating new replacement gages to match old gages? Although if youd done the battery thing before you dissassembled the cluster would give you a base for the speedo-didnt see any thing for the tach. If you didnt do the battery thing dont know if it'd help?
I looked around-all I found was http://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2/...ad.php?t=62796
Seth556 did you have any luck? I know yours is different than my 04, Ive noted a different procedure for needle reinstallment, primarily doing it with engine warm, driving and then puttin speedo needle on...
Mine I just set at zero with motor at its stop-I see the ealeir ones have a mechanicl stop. Could you possibley just remove needles and relocate the amount there off?
Hopefully someone with your year/type responds
Ive had mine out a couple of times-I ended up leaving the dash cover off and reinstalling everything else, so to work on cluster I didnt have to go thru the whole dissembly thing untill I was finally happy with it. makes taking the gage out like 2 seconds.
