Like the title says... some outfit in the US that made custom bevelled glass faces for vintage gauges. It was in the last month or two and darned if I can remember the right key words to search.

Thanks!





Oops. Crap.

Hey Chris - Cool motometer. What is it?

Dan yes that is one very cool accessory. My '26 Touring is otherwise pretty standard and this is what gets other T guys' attention.

There is more info on this general type of temperature gauge and this unit in particular here: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/197417.html

I mentioned in that thread I was looking for a patinated threaded base to mount my gauge on the radiator that search is still on if anyone can help.

Chris, If that is the same size as the Boyce Jr. motometer, replacement glass is available, from a few suppliers.

Thanks Mike for that suggestion. Sadly. this glass is a bit larger than my Motometer.

Hi From Iowa: I have one of these temp indicating rad caps with an arrow that does not work! Does anyone know of someone who could fix it? Thanks John

Chris we had side lamp glass cut and beveled at a local window company here in Winnipeg there must be an outfit in your local area that can do this?
