Help with motor meter please...


Recommended Posts

My Peerless/Boyce motor meter's mercury is "stuck" all the way at the top. (No it's not hot - just over time....)

Someone suggested gently tapping the top repeatedly and this will cause the "red juice" to go back down. 

What do you think please?

Ive dropped the  fluid my bouncing the  end of the motometer on a inflated tire.  Hold the gauge in your hand and repletely  tap the tire  wit the radiator end. It will return te fluid to the bottom.

I have used a combination of Marty and Mikes suggestions. Store upright in the freezer… in the evening when watching tv, spend 30 minutes or an hour tapping, not particularly gently, on a tire (or a not too precious book on an end table as I did)

 

After a couple or a weeks worth of days of this they always seem to go down. I did have one go back up the first time the car got warm and not return down… repeated process a few times always with the same result. I believe that one was even a modern reproduction that gave me fits.
