Need some help. I am doing a 100-6, but have replaced the motor with a 29f- 3000 motor. I am going to have the small gauges rebuilt. My problem, is the "magnolia" faced gauge from the 100-6 has a different size temperature bulb--I want the rebuilder to put the proper bulb and nut that would fit on an AEC 960 head. Does anyone know the threadsize/pattern for the insert?
As always, thanks for the help

Hello -

Former Jaywhawk here - just saw your post and think you should contact Nisonger Instruments in NY state. They can give you all that info and even rebuild the gauge is you need. Best.

Ditto on Darin's suggestion Doug.

They rebuilt the Speedometer in my BT7 years ago and did a very nice job.

Doug,
I found this info in the search section of the forum. This may give you the info you need.

You can get the adapter from Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies. They have an online site. Part number 1098 which is a 5/8-18 and 3/8 BSP adapter
Had to get one for my '57 BN4 when I changed the radiator to a new one.

Thanks for all the assistance, guys. I ended up sending the gauges to Speedy Cables in England and they did a wonderful job and they were able to put the "needed" insert/adapter on the thermometer end as necessary to fit the head properly. Great company with which to deal. Highly recommend them.
Cheers,
Doug

Hi Doug,

Got any photos of the finished gauges?

I'm in the process of having the color changed from Black with White letters
to Champagne with Black letters by NISONGER Instruments so I'd love to see the quality from Speedy Cables.

I also added some Alcantara leather in the oval to set off the new color of the gauges.

Thanks,
Peter

Thanks Pete.

Unfortunately it's taken me 45 years to figure out this is the color I've been looking for...
better late then never?

Can't wait to see how the new colors contrast with the Alcantara.
I'll post a before and after shot.

All the best,
Pete

Are you removing the extra gauges that you had installed in the earlier pictures? I had my gauges restored by a company out here in California called West Valley Instruments. They did a beautiful job and the gauges look fantastic. I have also heard nothing but good things about Nisonger but have never used them. I chose West Valley Instruments because they were recommended by British Car Specialists in Stockton California. They do all the gauges for the cars that they restore and are closer to home with a quicker turn around time. The prices were very comparable.

Hi Pete,

I'm not removing the small gauges I just haven't cut those holes out yet
but the gauges are in the mail so it won't be long now.

I never heard of West Valley but I'm sure they're qualified.

I'm always inclined to trust the devil I know rather then the one I don't.

Regards,
Peter
