Temp guage

PostPost by: hantsjo » Mon Jun 13, 2005 10:28 am

Hi all,
I need to get my temperature gauge re filled, is there anyone in the UK that
does this or can you still get new ones... is there another car that has
these combined oil / temp gauges - spitfire etc.?

Thanks in advance

MG Midgets have a very similar dual gauge if I remember correctly.

The Lotus one was (I Think) unique though because it has a max oil
pressure of 60lbs ..... to make the twink oil pressure look higher.
There is an story that it was changed because new owners were
concerned about low oil pressure!

Not used them since their move to Wales, but very helpful 20 years ago with
a Cooper S speedo repair and making custom bits for a Haflinger rebuild.

There was also a bloke around Salisbury who did my mate's Unipower GT gauges
- I'll try to find out about him.

Try Speedograph in Nottingham - VERY good, reliable etc (or were with my
tach about 10 years ago). Sure they do temp gauges.

If you struggle to track them down, let me know and I'll dig out a number.

Good luck

Rob
