My battery went dead, after charging, the speedo and tach are buried below
zero. How do I fix?  All other gauges are fine, so I don't suspect the fuse.

Stepper motors maybe weak for those gauges, sometimes a good thump right above the insturment with the engine running will jar them loose but eventually you will have to replace them.

FYI, The guage are electrical. Disconnecting and reconnecting the battery zeroed the stepper motors. All is good.
