99 Response RPM gauge fell out, Fixes?

Recommended Posts

The RPM gauge fell out of my 99 response. When I looked at it the studs were broke off the back of the gauge. Anyone else have this problem. I was thinking of using JB weld or other epoxy to glue the studs back on. Anyone else have this problem? Fixes?

Nothing wrong with epoxying the studs back on. If they don't hold then it's time for a new gauge.

Make sure you epoxy the studs straight, otherwise you will have a difficult time lining up the holes in the dash....or maybe time for PP :D.

Had the same problem. I cut some thin strips of 3M double faced tape and stuck the instrument to the dash. Worked great. I removed once to see how hard it would be to take off and stuck it back with the tape. A thin strip under the bezel and good as new.

Dave I thought about trying double sided tape as well.

Joe, I was planning on putting Perfect Pass soon. Probably in the next couple of weeks. I wasn't sure what gauges I would need. My buddies mastercraft 205 has PP installed and we use the tack a lot. So I figured I would replace Speedo gauge with the PP gauge, is this typical, I haven't install PP before on a boat.

Thanks, Greg
