Gas gauge accessory for sale.

Post by Dropacent » Wed Jul 22, 2020 9:01 pm

Dozens, if not hundreds of different gas gauge accessories were made back in the Model T Ford era. Some unique, some really bizarre. One even looks like an ash tray below your seat. We waited until we found just the right one to reproduce, and here it is. Just a gentle touch will tell you how much gas in in your tank.
Don’t be like Wile E. Coyote . Never again lean over your open tank with a lit match. Tired of looking for your dirty old stick? No problem, just a light touch of your finger, day-night or in a blackout....a light touch will tell you how much gas you have. Lost your cheaters again, no problem, a light touch will do it.
These are $125 ppd to you door, and as long as your cap fits the standard Ford thread, we can make an accessory to fit. Round tank, Oval tank, Cowl tank, Square tank, really deep speedster tank, if it takes a Ford cap, these will work. No extra charge for something custom.
The original design was improved just a bit, with aluminum and zinc plated steel for no corrosion issues, and most important, a Nitrophyl float for a lifetime of service.
Tmorsher@icloud.com to get your name on one. $125ppd to your door. Always a discount on multiple purchases or combining with a purchase of one of our other 19 products. Checks, PayPal GIFT, or cash works. THANKS!

Just to be clear, one orders for specific style tank, oval, round etc.? They are not "universal".

INSTRUCTIONS Gas gauge accessory for sale.

Post by Dropacent » Thu Jul 23, 2020 12:32 pm

Really , the best way is to reach out to me, email tmorsher@icloud.com and you can decide what type of tank you have. If something special , we can discuss that Via email. I don’t phone anyone, as I don’t use a phone. ( loving that ! ) I really don’t have time to chase anyone, I’m busy enough already. So, I should rephrase this. THE ONLY way to reach us and discuss details is to email me at tmorsher@icloud.com MANY THANKS IN ANY INTEREST IN OUR STUFF! Happy Ting !

Yes, I wanted to use one but it wouldn’t work with an oval tank. Did you reconfigure the new one to fit the later tanks?

Gasket is included. I’ve missed some but have put a dab of white grease on a couple. I’d suggest that or vasoline for any gas tank cap. If I wasn’t so lazy , I’d include instructions, but after all, it is a gas cap.
4 more off today. New problem, we are the last route of the day here. Found that out the hard way yesterday. Figuring they missed us, I ran them up to the PO and rung the back bell. It was dark inside and nobody around. If they don’t get picked before overtime kicks in, they sit until the next day. I’ll hold further comments on that issue.
