Temp Gauge Repair

Post by JT7196 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 11:43 pm

Hi Chaps, as many of you will know by now, I have given up trying to get my Temp Gauge repaired with Speedograph, (Failed twice ) and Speedycables apparently do not give a very good service according to some or the “ Feedback” I have seen.
I have tried to contact Adrian Sidwell about Three times now, and still not getting a reply, so is there anybody out the who can get my Temp Gauge working ?or at least recommend a competent repairer please?
In desperation, I have ordered a modern electric one, which comes supplied with a Bracket, I can then secure it on the underside of the Dashboard.
Your thoughts,would be much appreciated😀😀

Cheers Al 😀😀

Hello Al,

Not certain if you have a capillary temperature gauge, which may scupper this suggestion, but JDO Instruments might be able to assist.

It is owned / run by John Ostick and have attached a link to provide contact if you so wish.

He MAY be able to do an electronic conversion whilst keeping the integrity of the instrument - I just do not know.

He can be a bit blunt, but is harmless !!

Certainly worth a call - his details are on the contact page.

it’s a few years ago now but i used JDO to recondition my Jaeger chronometric speedometer. i was pleased with the service provided. i’ve also had experience of Speedycables and was very disappointed. Again, it was a few years ago and may have improved since. All the best, Ranald

Al, did you try the boil test to see if any movement at all?

Hi John, yes I did, and it did not move off the stop!
I did actually reply to you last week, it obviously got lost in the Either.
In answer to you Ranald, no its the Capillary type Temperature Gauge, still awaiting a reply from Adrian !!!! :( :( :( :(

Cheers Al :D :D
