Thanks Carl, I agree with you 100%, that's a crazy price they are asking. They don't even provide a photo of the reverse side (the important stuff). Could you please send me photos of the one you mentioned and your asking price?

 John I'm sorry to report that I buggered the temperature gauge up trying to get it out of the housing and doubt I will be able to salvage the gauge. Only other temperature gauge I have is going to be included with a complete instrument cluster.

 

 The gauge Ann Bell is selling looks like it has been rebuilt so I would assume the back looks alright, but you could ask for a picture if you are concerned. Only other suggestions I would have are Dave Tacheny, wait and hope another one pops up on Ebay or a swap meet, or have yours rebuilt.

Thanks Carl, I'm just starting this project and have a lot of time before this gauge is needed. I really do appreciate your replying to this topic, and am sorry to hear that I wouldn't be able to purchase the gauge from you. I'll keep in mind your recommendation to contact Dave.

Thanks again, John

Bob, what I ended up doing was purchasing a water temp gauge for a 1951 GMC truck for $68.00, and interchanging the face plate with my defective water gauge. The unit I purchased was new and did not include the continious spiral wire protector. It did, however,  include a short protective covering in areas where a bend was required. Suggestion to anyone else that goes this route, be sure to purchase a water temp gauge that has the correct length of tubing. Gauges come in different tube lengths.

Thanks for the response.
