    Autocar trucks and Cords had a very similar gauge design, except I've only seen them with maroon outer rings and yellow lettering. The Autocar and Cord have the rings silkscreened on the center like yours too, but the wrong color. All I can say is they are probably late 30's and made by Stewart-Warner.
     
  3. It looks like the kind of gauge that was used on old White & Freight-liner cab-over trucks. HRP
     
  4. Neat looking gauge. Hope you can determine it's origin and find the oil pressure companion.

    Why run this gauge Anyhow? The Bourdon tube is broken off and it pegs at 220. Most pressurized systems can run a lot hotter than that.

    Maybe he's gonna run it in a flathead. If so Williamson's can repair it with a new sending bulb.

    Probably because Summit has the Dolphin gauges on back order.
