Temperature guage wont work

Ok maybe someone can shed some light on this. I cannot get the stock temperature guage to work. I have replaced the temp sending sensor, cleaned the connections. I am hoping someone on here can help me out.

I took the dash apart and cleaned the connections on there as well. I tried to ground out the guage to see if I got any response and nothing it doesnt budge. I am assuming that the guage on the cluster must be bad. Any suggestions on what maybe to try next would be great.

I got out my volt meter and checked everything out. I am getting voltage and traced out the wires and all are good. I took the guage apart and cannot find anything. Everything OHMS out and checks good with voltage. I even did the oil pressure as well to see what kind of voltage readings I was getting to compare the two. They are getting exactly the same voltage on both guages. What a pain. I am going to the junk yard to see if I can find one. I will be puttin in aftermarket guages ASAP.
