Stewart Warner Model 757-W RPM Guage

Fri Oct 28, 2005 5:02 pm


I am looking at a hand held Stewart Warner Model 757-W RPM Guage.

It looks fine and works well, but there is a problem....


Are these tips replaceable, or should I be looking at bidding on another example..

I gotta know shortly... bidding ends tonight..

Rudi, I'm positive that the tip is replaceable.

K, what would be a fair price to pay for one... JB I know... you got a steal... :!: :roll: :lol: :lol: I am hoping....

Any idea where to find the tips?

I have been searching the net for Stewart Warner Tachometers.. but not much luck so far

Go to and type in RPM in the search field. When that returns, click on "RPM Dial Tachometer" I don't know whether the replacement tips, item 1416T3 will fit your tach or not. But for $4.69, it is almost cheaper to order them and toss out if they don't fit than to try to find out otherwise.

Unfortunately, they don't identify the supplier of their tach.

Or, you can look here for the S-W part number. and here for a distributor.

Rudi, those origianlly came with 3 interchangeable tips. one ended in a pointed > ao you could put the point in the recess of the end of a shaft such as the cub pto. Second tip was inverted < so it could be used on a pointed shat. 3rd one was just a rubber sleeve that allowed the used of a small inlcuded extension. Doubth that they are still available, but would think that with a little searching through hardware stores and a little cerativity, something could be made to work.

K guys:

So you think about 20 bucks to 30 bucks would be a good deal?

McMaster-Carr tips fit Stewart Warner tachs.

Rudi I think I would pass on that auction. Have you seen this one from Canada??, I think it would be a better deal so far. ... dZViewItem

BE PATIENT!! Wait for the better deal. I searched for 3-months before I latched on to My GOOD deal. Also SW still makes the same tach so parts must be available.

Looks like I done pretty good. Almost got sniped by $.50... last 40 secs, I upped to $32.00 and I got it for $30.99US..

Not too shabby. Now all I got to do is to figure out the best way to get it here without having to pay duty.... it is over the limit by $0.99.....


anyways, here it is :Stewart Warner Model 757-W Tachometer.

Jim, I guess next stop once it gets here is McMaster-Carr.. thanks for the info guys.. ej thanks for the confirmation.

I have that one on watch, but I have been trying to buy one for quite a while. Whenever I remember to search for it. Over the last year I guess I have missed a bunch... most have gone for $50.00 to $75.00US.. was just reminded of one today.. $75.00 it went for..

I don't mind having to get the tips... at least it appears to be a pretty good one.
