Default Gauge issues

Hello, new to the forum. New to me 66 F100, 352, 3 on the tree.
Fuel and temp gauges read full scale. Performed continuity check from fuel sender to gauge. All good. Tested sender with ohm meter. All good. Cleaned grounds. With some searching and googling, I checked the voltage regulator on back of instrument panel. Was getting 12v in and 12v out. Picked up a new regulator (NPD 10 minutes from my house). 12v in, 8v out, gauges still pegged. Am I missing something? I read that the output is sweeping and I am using a digital multimeter. Any guidance on what else I could check would be much appreciated.
Thanks and looking forward to working on this thing!
