Title: Who can fix gauges ?
Post by: Cleprechaun on September 26, 2018, 04:07:50 PM
My cluster gauges have been in the hands of three people who claimed they could fix it. Got it back from Bobs Speefometer in Michigan today and found they put the wrong gas gauge in it (wrong needle and only goes to half tank) and the other gauges still do not work even though they claim to have tested them. Who can fix these things ?

I use Williamson's Instruments,Inc. Web sight is  www.williamson's.com  I've got good service from them.  I've had bad experience with Bob's Speedometer also.

That's too bad that the place that is only a few minutes drive from my house has a bad rep!  Figures.  Good luck with your gauges.

Oh well, I was going to try to do them myself anyway....

I’m giving them a second chance. I just sent my gauge back to Bob’s

I have used AutoInstruments, out of Martinsville, VA for all my muscle car gauge restorations.
I gave them my halftrack gauges, and they did an outstanding job.
Figure I would share the information.  Best of luck to everyone's projects!

The cluster gauges are pretty easy to do. If you carefully  pry the the bezel ring loose you can replace the glass. Daryl decals work really good. Speedometer is more complicated.

What are you guys doing for broken/missing needles?  Any tips or tricks?
