I'm installing my reverse indiglo gauges and now have to reset the needles. When I do the guage test (press the trip odo., turn the key to run, "test", release) how far are the gauges supposed to sweep to reset them properly?

For people's information... what I ended up doing is: 1)fill up the fuel tank (then put needle at "F") 2) warmed up the car until the fan came on (then put the needle in the middle) 3) idled the car when it was warmed up (put the needle at around 750rpm, then hit the rev limiter to test upper limit) 4) went for a drive and put the needle on the speedo while driving at 2000 rpm in 4th gear and putting the needle at 60Km/H, or just below 40Mph.

Getting the needles off... be VERY careful while using a small screwdriver (a tiny one) and turn it while it's stuck between the gauge face and the needle case.
