Default Superb, Working Vacuum Gauge

Absolutely, by far, the nicest, original vacuum gauge I have seen/had in 40 years of Pontiacing. Face has perfect, original colors, no dings or dents in the ring. Cup has excellent plus original chrome, probably a 9.5 on a 10 scale. Has an original, rechromed base under the housing. Was used as a paper weight with the round base being metal and 5 1/4" diameter. Overall shipping weight is about 6 pounds. If you don't want the metal base, I'll remove it.

$285.00

At cost shipping and you pay via Paypal as friends/family

Question

Hi Bob,
That's not something I want but question, is it a working item? Reason I ask is I'm surprised to see the needle sitting hard in the red zone.

Is that correct? I'm only asking because I don't know

Ian

It’s sitting at zero because it’s not connected to a running engine so not measuring any vacuum. An engine at idle might make anywhere between 12 and 20 inches of vacuum depending on the camshaft or condition of the engine itself.

Note the red zone is the power zone, low to no vacuum is full throttle operation.

Rest assured that Bob isn’t selling a broken yet perfect looking vacuum gauge.
