    Looking for gauges for Abarth cluster housing.

     



    Well, i have a replica housing, but short the gauges. If you have a line, let me know.

    Walt Paladini responded to me via email, and I'll follow up on that lead. If anyone else has input, please share. Walt wrote:

    Brent,
    I saw your question on Miafiori about the Abarth housing. I am also
    trying to create the same setup and I am assuming that you have the one
    with the larger (tach) hole in the middle. What I have come up with so
    far is: Porsche 914 speedo and tach fit perfect in the respective holes
    with the triple gauge being the missing link. I am messing around with
    the other 914 gauge (I think it houses a fuel gauge and some idiot
    light) trying to create a reasonable facimile of the Abarth triple
    (fuel, water temp and oil pressure) but this is a little more
    complicated. I haven't installed them in the car yet so I don't have any
    info to share on that subject other than the tach is electric and
    shouldn't be to difficult and the speedo will probably need an adapter
    made up or a custom speedo cable.
    I also know that Alfa Giulitetta speedo and triple gauges are the right
    size for the smaller holes but the triple gauge has a oil temp as
    opposed to a pressure indicator.
    There was somebody selling a replica setup on Ebay a while back (they
    were in Spain I believe) and they wanted around a $1000 for the whole
    thing, a little more than I had in mind.
    I have also seen early (flat faced) 124 gauges installed with a filler
    plate (for the tach only) to take up the extra space around the outside
    area, and the three small gauges (oil, temp, fuel) clustered in the
    triple gauge hole, just doesn't look "authentic" enough for me.
    Always nice to hear about other 600 folks out there as I have connected
    with 3 other 600'ers in my area and have swapped info and ideas to
    everyones benefit.

    Paul, thanks for the input. I noticed my cluster housing is a fair bit different than yours. It was sorta home made it appeared (My wife got it for me off ebay a year or so ago for $20), and the mold was very rough. I on the other hand threw a hammer and aluminum at it this last weekend and shaped up a nice shell for it and it's looking pretty good. I'll post pics this weekend.

    Here's some pics of the guage housing I worked on last weekend. Still have some finishing touches, but looks ok, but needs the right guages.... Kinda fun beating on metal.
