Dual station temp guage

I am looking for a 1977 vintage dual station water temp Guage for my 34 CHB 120 Leyman. I have tried multiple new ones but they are not compatible with my lower helm guage and sender. So, I am trying to find an old style. Any help directing my search would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Have you tried American Diesel who are the Lehman experts?
He may or may not be able to help but give him a call.

The answer depends on what gauges you have. All gauges that I have worked with use the same gauge dual station or single station, the sender is what is different.

The older Lehmans I've worked with in Grand Banks used Stewart Warner gauges and followed this pattern, identical gauges and a dual station sender.

Thank you. I have contacted American Diesel. In my case it is the guage that is marked dual station only. Replacing with Faria(sp) guage and another they are not the correct resistance so they mess up the working guage.

I always found it prudent to replace sender and gages. I was never overly concerned that they looked vintage or not, just as long as they were accurate.
I shopped on "egages.com" and found what I needed. I wanted a temp gage that had a 180 mark. Not easy but I found them and an appropriate sender.
Also changed the oil pressure gages and sender.

Yup, nice VDOs. Did the same. Match senders to gauge scales.

Thank you al for your help. Turns out my gauges are AC and they stop producing in 1992. Brian from American Diesel suggested a set with new sender and gauges. I will likely go that route and replace both gauges and sender. I appreciate the help and direction. I am into this 34 CHB project 6 months now and getting closer to having a good reliable vessel!

Dual Gauges

I had the same problem .I ended up buying Veethree gauges .
They are mechanical and have an adjustable switch built in , to power a buzzer or light at low oil pressure or high temp
Easy and work great.
