Cracked gauge lenses

Recommended Posts

I know I can't be the only one whose gauge lenses have cracked over time. What was your fix? New gauge? What did you use.

I shipped my 5" lens to a fellow TMC member after I installed Perfect Pass.  Keep an eye out - you may get lucky.

Good point. I've got a non working guage with good glass.  I wonder how hard it is to swap the glass.

Does your boat use the AirGuide speedometers?  If so, two options are:

  1. Send your gauges out to a company like http://www.classicboatwork.com/classicparts/gauges/restorations/restoration_gauge.html.
  2. Use a chemistry watch glass for a replacement.  I think the older boats used a 90mm face (like this: https://www.amazon.com/American-Educational-Polished-Edges-Diameter/dp/B008EMAAY2/ref=sr_1_1?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1491580100&sr=1-1&keywords=watch+glass+90mm), but you should measure yours to be sure.  This is the more DIY approach as you will need to drill a couple of holes in the glass with a diamond bit for the adjustment knob.

I knew I could not be the only one. My speedo's and tach are fine. It's my temp gauge that is unreadable.

Thanks to those who replied
