It could vary between different trucks depending on proper tune and engine quality. Just put the needle back on when the truck is NOT running. Easy. Done.

Best/most accurate way to do it would be A) use a digital reader or another tach to get a reading or B) find a good RPM calculator and use a speed/gear where the TC is locked so you have a straight reading (although it involves doing this while moving).

EDIT - You have a manual, N/M the T.C. thing.
