Some old gauges...

Picked up a few what appear to be vintage guages from the junkyard earlier this week. The tach has no identifying marks or numbers on it whatsoever - look familiar to anyone? The Stewart Warner gauges have a set of numbers on the face of the unit and two of them have some ink part #'s stamped on the back. Any ideas what/when these are from? Any clues as to a list of part #'s to identify them? My internet searching has turned up nothing useful, except to be on the lookout for green-lines or curved glass versions. Thanks in advance.

Doc here,

The SW's you can still buy today at any speed shop of on the SW site..They are the Cheap version of their Instrumentation Line.

Your #1 Amp Gauge has taken a dump too..(needle pointing straight south..)

Nothing rare or old there.

The Tach may be a Stock type of Console Tach..can't really tell for sure..Does it have 1 or 3 wires out the back..? If it has one wire then a Calibration board is required also..and it may be a stock type ... like A GTO , Ford Sprint and the like..

If it has like 3 wires out the back..RED / BLACK / Green or Gray / it may just be like a mini tach like they sold at Kmart 15 years ago..

What you can try, is carefully pull the back off the Tach, and look at the Board, see if it has an Original Part number.. and stamp Ford, GM etc..

Thanks Doc. The tach does have the 3 wire back. I'll pull it apart and see if I can find anymore info.
