Oil pressure gauge

Postby ScottyG » Tue Jan 04, 2005 10:17 am

I know that this has been asked before but can someone tell me what the proper oil gauge should look like on a 1948 Cub? Should this be the indicator type with no numbers or the numbered type? If numbered, 0 to 45, 0 to 75, 0 to 80? Can't imagine that the pressure could get high enough for the latter two.

I'm no originality expert, but form what I've read they were equipped with both the no number and 0-45. It appeared to depend on what they had on hand at the time.

The one that I see the most is the no-number gauge.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I have the "no-numbered" one on my '48. However, I have to check the "Pat.No." on it to find out if it is original or not....... :?
