gauge cluster rebuild and calibration

I would like to rebuild the gauge cluster in a 70 charger but I am unable to find any information on the steps I need to take to restore them to operate in a like new condition. The speedo and tach needles bounce, the ammeter gives inaccurate charge/discharge readings, and the fuel indicator just doesn't work. Any ideas on where I can find info on restoring these rather than replacing them would be greatly appreciated.

This information might help you. I suspect there is a voltage limiter on the back side of the dash for the gauges. This might be your problem. Attached is some diagnostic information and wiring diagram's.
