Just looked and your disc knob is large so you can't see the numbers. Maybe switch your threshold knob with your disc knob. It's the only small knob you have left lol. You can set the knob to disc out something you want to set it to and tighten it there.

Looks like the GB knob is the large too.
Looks like he bought new knobs but bought the large ones from Tesoro. The tejon had at least one larger one

I'll have to look at it when I get it. I hope I don't have to send it in to Tesoro

Heck no you don't!!!
Any Tesoro dealer sells the knobs lol.
The cost of shipping may suck but you can find a place that will throw them in a cheaper padded envelope.
But setting it is up to you. You get to pick what number you want whatever target you choose discs out. Or keep it how it is by putting a sticky label on the housing, moving it all the way to whichever side you put the label, make a mark where the knob stops and the white line is, then loosen the knob via the set screw on the side of the knob. Then you put the new one on, align the line on the new knob with your mark you made on the sticky label and tighten the set screw on that one and then remove the sticky label and you're done.
Sounds complex but not really.

Or you move the pot to a target discing out with the knob off, put the new knob on to the number you want it to disc out on, then tighten it.
If needed we can tell you where something like a zinc disc out and you can still it to that.

It's all up to you. It's your machine!!!
But the numbers helped me to be able to see and remember

Masking tape and a sharpie will work. As long as what you use let's the ink or whatever stick

It's what I used when I modded my cibola. I used printer labels that you can print on and cut pieces and put them on each knob area and marked them.
The cibola is on the left and the little white pieces are the marks. Other pic to show the difference in the disc of the cibola and vaquero but the cibola is on the left and you can hopefully see the white pieces on the faceplate by the knobs

Just turn the k on all the way left or all the way right and put the sticky on and mark it.

Did you add ground balance to a Cibola?

Yeah. And toggle under the housing to replace the pinpoint button because the GB pot took the buttons spot so it's like a fast retune/disc toggle now

Yes and no.
If you look at the pic, the disc isn't spread the same. If you look at the yellow lines and/or the black marks on the housings the left line on each is a nickel and the right ones are a zinc.
The cibola is much more spread out in the middle.
