Do you have plan to do that yourself Curtis? Or do you know of a company to do that? You have me thinkin on this now....I have a broken stock gauge, might purchase a cheap mechanical gauge and try to make it work!

Went to garage and found old oil pressure gauge and disassembled. Lookey here, there's 2 adjustments to make inside the case! I didn't have a good bezel to work with so I wasn't too worried about messing it up by bending it! If someone wanted to take the time, I suppose you could drill 2 small holes in back of case and make the adjustments without taking the whole thing apart.

How about a pic of the back of the case? Does it have holes to access the adjustments?

Good question.... so I go back to garage and slap the gauge back in and lo and behold there are 2 holes that line up the the adjusters! Should have looked a little closer after I got it apart!
