Default Triple action required

A friend is rebuilding his Volmer VJ22 and is having trouble locating a serviceable 3 in 1 engine gauge known as an AN5773-1. The is oil pressure, fuel pressure and a 12 volt oil temperature. If any one has one available please let me know and I will put him in contact.

Thanks !!

I just threw out my latest edition of Trade-A-Plane; however there is an advertisement in there for a shop that will repair or restore this.

It's a standard gauge for a Stearman, and there are a few shops that still repair them. As mentioned, check TAP.

I have two of them but the temp is a probe and cable, not 12v. One has a long cable and the other a shorter one. Both are reading the same temp as air now. Don’t know how accurate or if it works. Make offer if interested.

Default Modern version

I had to replace both gages in my C45 - same basic design. I called UMA and they made ‘em up using modern electronic parts. I recall the price was about the same for either version.

Default Thank you

Thanks for the info. Seems there aren't too many of these serviceable old gauges around. I will pass this info on

The ones spruce has are electric. The original AN gauges had no electrical connection.

A friend just pulled one from his RV-6 for a JPI installation. I'll send him your way.
