Looking for waterproof gauges

Hi all,

I decided to do one more dash makeover and now I would need two or three more gauges. I am looking for oil pressure, oil temperature and manifold vacuum gauges. These should be the typical 52 mm (2 ") size.
I currently have ammeter and voltmeter from Teleflex marine series and they work fine. My previous ones were normal auto gauges but they turned into bubble levels in two months.

The problem seems to be that the marine gauge manufacturers don't seem to carry all my desired gauges. Instead they have all kinds of wind meters and rudder position indicators etc. which don't help me much.

And on top of that I also have the Metric syndrome. So the readings in deg C and pressure in kpi or bar, please...

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance...

Regards

Hi Ari,

Check out Stewart warner guages www.stewartwarner.com THey have a line of marine deluxe guages that include an oil temp and a manifold vacum guages. I don't know pricing or availability where you are but it is at least a start.
