Pardon the use of an old thread, but I figured I'd try you all before creating a new one.
My dad just surprised me with some very nice looking teak panels
that he made to replace my deteriorating Yanmar
Type-C instrument panels
Now, the fogged up plastic gauges are even more of an eyesore. I wouldn't mind replacing them, but I don't see the exact replacement for sale
. Mine have a little plastic ring that sticks out, allowing the washers on the back to have something to grab onto. The ones they sell now don't have a ring but rather just the "twist lock" system. The gauge itself seems to be the same size. The last thing I want is to tell my dad he has to modify them now!
Does anyone know if these are generally compatible, both in the sense of fitting the housing and in the sense of working with existing sensors and wiring
Alternatively, any source for the older style gauges, or any way to open it and clean the lens? Thanks!
