Gauge Seals x 2 and Dome Glass Suppliers

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of cleaning up the 2" gauges for my sidescreen car. When I take them apart there appears to be perished rubber seal between the bezel and the glass plus the one which goes between gauge and dash.

Also I am missing a couple of domed glasses. I have being on the internet for some time now to no avail.

Please could someone identify where I could get these 2 seals for each gauge + a couple of domes. The difficult bit being the glass to bezel seals.

Thanks for your help.

I have used 'O' rings on a number of gauge re-builds, cant remember the exact size, but I can measure one if you like, I have a packet of them for just that reason.

Thanks gents, the 'O' ring idea is excellent I have found a supplier on ebay already.

I'm get my vernier on the gauge and order accordingly. Although the glass domes may need a more conventional approach as indicated by Roger.

John,

I used this (ebay descreption) :
NEW 3mm Sponge Cord Seal x 1 meter for Smiths Bezel
Item 301323583504
They also do a 4mm dia for the larger instruments.

The cheapest place for domed glass is:

I have not tried them, but they are clock parts suppliers and have just about any size you may want.

Charlie.

Yes John i agree it is hard to find the seal between the bezel and gauge.  The gauge to dash can be found as mentioned by others so look forward to further replies .

Roy,

As I mentioned earlier, look at eBay item 301323583504.

The description reads:

"NEW 3mm Sponge Cord Seal x 1meter
Fits between Bezel and Glass
recommended for small type bezels a 4mm version is available for the large bezels."

I have used this myself to go between the bezel and the glass.

Charlie.
