S/W gauges; Sentry tach.
Old gauges,hummm,some really cool looking dash's in here ! For me actully starting in the 50s I used what I could find for free in junked cars,took them home. My fav. was out of Studebakers. Some things don't change a lot. I've hooked up a good number of new for other buddys,but my own rod gets leftovers from the parts box. At one point had SW oil an water,but oil failed,so just pulled a working leftover out of parts box. Maybe some day I'll find another SW oil. For now they work,I don't do a lot of gauges. I always kept my own simple,oil,water an speed=1928 speed-O dose work,but bottoms out at about 75.
Goodness gracious. I'm pretty sure that triple gauge pod is worth more than my blower! '57 F-code T-bird?
This is NOS and a beauty......literally looks like fuc.ing jewelry to me...... .
I have a few of those Rochesters......the temp gauges a getting hard to find.
Yes , too often the line to the sender is junk. I was lucky and found a good SW gauge for my latest coupe- 25 bucks at a swap.

‘33 Chrysler for my A coupe. Got it at Jalopyrama two years ago. At Williamson’s getting Ron’s treatment.
Best I can do is retro styled modern gauges.
I bought a $5 electronic donor tach to provide the guts for my oldie S.W. 2 piece tach with the back section removed. Works great!
Recently I have been trying to off these vintage gauges. A real military oil pressure gauge. Electric. Don't know about the sender. But it followed me home from Ft. Lewis in 62.And a rare vintage boost gauge. Says CIE on it. Looks like it could use some calibration. Anybody who can use either of these, feel free to make an offer. I don't expect to retire on them.
