Default speed/tach calibrating

looking to change the color on my gauges but the real question is how do i calibrate my tach and speedo back to normal? cuz i know putting back to the stops doesnt do it.

Get 2 black wires and 2 red wires

Instead of using the "roach clip" method use a T-tap and just splice it into the loop of the wire with the clips
