Default Leak Down tester issue?

Help my first time doing leak down testing, I think there is a problem with a borrowed gauge.

When I set the percent gauge to zero the pressure gauge showed 32 lbs. If I tried to increase the input pressure, the % gauge would swing clockwise out of the setting range.

Doing the test using the 32 lbs the leak down % on the #1 cylinder was 5%.

Now sure if things are ok, Compressor putting out 100#.
