Any suggestions for a gauge type that similar in writing and script to the OE gauges for a later model for 8n. I m completely rewiring the tractor with a single wire alternator conversion etc. Also going to install a temperature gauge (head already drilled and tapped). I see no real need for a amp meter so I m ok with converting that to a voltmeter. Water temperature and oil pressure are far more important. I do want to have a set of gauges that are back lit so if you use the machine at night you can see exactly what all the gauges are saying.

If you have any suggestions as far as gauge brands/types that would be fantastic. Thanks.

I don't have an answer on the guages for
you. I think if I had back lit guages I
would I would add a rheostat in the
curcuit so I could dim them.
About a year ago I drove an Allis
Chalmers home for a guy at night that
had back lit guages. They were too
bright and very annoying. My own
tractors have no lights on them. I
always take them off so I don't wreck
them. Put them back on if/when I sell
it. But my tractors don't do any
"roaming in the gloaming" either.
They are like chickens and go to their
shed at the first sign of dusk. It's
beer thirty by then anyway.

Napa carries a line of retro SW gauges, you might find something there.
