Default Guage Scraping gone slightly wrong...Ideas?

So I decided to do the whole scrape your guages and get rid of the ugly green...well all went very well until I put the guages back into the car.

No Speedo and No rpm. Played around with the needles and got them to atleast work (seems I must have pushed the needles down somehow). Anyways, the tach works fine, the gas guage and temp gueage all work fine.

My speedo works but is slow, it sticks at certain speeds going up or down. When I take the cover off I can move the needle by hand and it sweeps up and down quite smootly, no snags.

So my question is has anyone else run into this issue and if so what did you do to fix it? Anyone have any ideas period?!?!? Been just driving the car around to see if that would help anything out and hasnt really done much.

Can you oil the needle, or something along those lines?

Make sure the needles plastic base thingy is pushed all the way down to the gauge face itself. It will stick at certain time if it's not.

Use a tiny screwdriver and just pop it down. It's hard to describe, but it's right underneath the pivot point of the needle.

yea and make sure it's pressed down all around, even if one part has popped up it'll feel smooth but still snag when actually in the car.

^^ Ditto what they said. It's a little top hat looking piece under the base of the needle that holds the gauge face down. There are 2 main pins that hold it in place. If either one isn't fully seated, it catches.
