Here's a never used old Boyce Moto Meter still in the original shelf worn box. The meter came packed in the cotton draw string bag inside the box.

Does this ever make the repop one I've got on my car look like a plastic trinket. The chrome is just too bright!

I just can't believe you have not just the box, but the cloth bag as well. Pretty amazing.

Thanks for posting.

Nice, the box info on how to move the fluid back down the tube i.e.'swing violently' is good....looks like you need to follow the instructions, that red fluid is full up in the meter :-)

And one way to make the repops look old is to find a couple busted originals a swaps for a few $, then take apart and use the original face plate and the nickle rims on the new one.....you get new performance and old look!

I like the mention in the instructions of -
“Tighten setscrew ‘C’ and drive in lead ball to secure against removal.”
A security method used for years in the ‘infamous’ Robertson head screws,
(Using lead shot or BB’s.)

And here are the patents for the dates shown on Jay’s original MotoMeter packaging . . .

As popular as Moto-Meters are, I don't understand why they don't make the repro ones available in nickel also. Dave
