I HAVE HAD MY 25' TOURING FOR 14 MONTHS... & thanks to Gary and Steve (ModelTClubSouthern Nevada) I am blessed with a REAL WINNER.

I discovered the AKURET Oil Guage to protect my engine (it has been pulled twice!) .... boy, am I happy! My wife no longer has to get on her knees to check for me :>)

Buy one and never guess the oil level!!!

Here's the 2010 accessory of the Day Thread on this original accessory. The parts vendors sell the reproductions.

I had the fun of making one myself with brass elbow from plumbing supply, thick wall copper tubing, aluminum rod, 5/8" bolt head a bit of drilling and a good tap & die set. Toughest part was lining up the hole thru the splash apron but it went ok. More fun for me if I can do it myself.

I like it except for the having to drill a hole in your splash apron part.

Would be nice it you could extend it up through to the engine compartment near the firewall.

Dan, thats a good idea. another elbow fitting and you probably could angle it up the dash or even the floorboard I bet.

Not for me. I'd rather crawl through the dust with pride and do it Henry's way.

I did it thru the splash apron because I'd seen 2 cars with that configuration. If you used a flexible strip of sheet metal you could probably work it into the engine compartment. Good variation. What was the original AKURET application ?

the installation was very easy when I figured out that a piece of 'dowling' fitted into the 'elbow' and cut to the length needed to reach the splash pan gave me the EXACT angle up to the splash pan to mark for the drilling hole .... did I say that I am NOT mekanikallee inclined?

AND, yes at 74, I have had some 'drilling' and implanting on me ... so I was OK with this addition :>)

This is a great forum! Thank you!!
