Default Boost gauge

I believe there were a group of three gauges fitted to the 400 turbo bat volts, turbo boost and I cant remember the third one. I think they were in one unit. I need to know the dimensions of the unit and has anyone got one for sale please. Regs Wrinkles

There were several combinations - I assume it is the boost gauge you are after? I have the unit in my 480 and will measure it for you; that's the three gauge one (volts, oil pressure and blank since I do not have a turbo.

440/460 pre-facelift had a 2 gauge unit (boost and, I think, oil pressure). Post facelift 440/460 turbos had a single turbo gauge in the middle of the lower centre console.

Not sure how lucky you'll be finding these but maybe helps to know your options...

Thanks for that I need the dimensions to see if it will fit in the space under the radio in a 940.There used to be loads in the scrappy a few years ago

Sadly, the days of finding 480s in scrappies appear to be long gone unless you hit really lucky.

Dimensions of the three gauge unit are 185mm x 44mm x 75mm deep including bulbs and connector.

It sits underneath a standard DIN radio in the 480, so there should be a good chance of you making it work...

All the best

David
