Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: $9.99 Motometer for a ''T'' filler neck

I just looked at the motometer thread, but since mine's NOT mounted on a T I didn't want to cause any ugly comments so I started my own thread. Warning given, LOL! I purchased a sad, burned and melted full-sized Motometer on eBay a year or so ago. Long, long ago when the car it was on was scrapped the scrappers torch must have melted the lower part of the housing. Anyway no one else wanted this thing so I decided to give it a go. $9.99 later it was mine. I decided to grind the shank down so I could cover it up. A large brass plumbing nut notched to fit up under the center body was the ticket. The glass retaining rings are brass, so I removed the nickle plating on them and the screws. For the base I had some brass plumbing caps I had ordered from England for an engine project. I sanded and polished a cap, drilled it for the shank of the Motometer. I had a cast-brass ''T'' radiator cap which I cut the threads off of and then pressed these threads onto the bottom of my plumbing cap. I installed a ''t'' filler neck on my truck and a little brass polish later a nice Motometer....$9.99 and a little time. Gary

There are some people that can fall in a tube of STINKY STUFF and come out smelling like a big bunch of roses.

I was there with my Grey Gardeneer crawler tractor and Planet Jr. I was riding a GE Electrac. I looked over you folks replicas. There was a older guy I used to talk to with that group I didn't see this year.
