Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Neat gas gauge revisited

The weather here today is horrible so I began to restore a gas gauge found on a 1927 coupe. One of the things I love about this hobby is the interesting trivia associated with accessory T items. The glass tube is monogramed - MONCRIEFF'S "PERTH" SCOTLAND. A little computer research produced that they were a company that produced glass tubes for the steam locomotive industry. Unfortunately this tube is cracked all the way around in one spot so I am going to carefully reassemble and use as a display piece. Just an interesting bit of information I thought I would share.

Harvey, a neon sign guy should be able to weld it if it is soda glass, maybe not if it is pyrex. Jim Y

Thanks Jim, I think I'll just leave it alone and display it. I am beginning to acquire a small collection of aftermarket accessories for the Model T. Thanks for the suggestion. Harv

Gas gauge ? We call those "water sights" when piped into a steam locomotive backhead.
Tells the fireman the water level in the boiler to better regulate the water injectors.

Thanks Burger, This one was mounted next to the passenger door on a 1927 coupe that is my next restoration project. according to the computer the Mongrieff's company made many types of glass tubes for various applications. Neat info. Thanks. - Harv.
