AC Oil Pressure Gauge

Hi, I have a bad oil gauge I would like to replace and the folks at American Diesel said they stopped making them in 1993. So if anyone has switched out their gauges and has one they would like to sell me, let me know. I will include a pic of mine, but basically it is AC brand, dual station, operating with my FL120.
Thank you

I've bought oil and temperature gauges from Steiner Tractor. Easy to work with and good service.

If you can't get the exact gauge, you can certainly get a replacement from various sources. Replacement gauges are usually sold by size and then the range covered. There are plenty of replacements that will do what you want and fit the spot. Just get one you like, but you likely will have to replace both gauges and the sending unit. (because there are at least a few types of sending units and you have to have the right one to get correct readings)

You might be better off getting two new gages and a new sending unit. I had an oil pressure gage go bad and I bought a new one and it did not work. You need to match the sender with the gage and make sure you get a dual station sender.

Make sure the gauge is actually failed. Many times the problem is elsewhere..

It stays pegged to the high side - electric on/off engine on/off. I alligator clipped it to the other side and still stays pegged, even as the other moves, so I'm pretty sure it is broken.
