Hello,

I´ve got a modified ammeter gauge (front original look from 1947 and rear electrical side from maybe 60´s) on my Chevrolet 3800. Due to another electrical problem the gauge was burned. I want to purchase a new gauge and modify it to old look like it was done bfefore. Does anybody know the year of this gauge (see rearside).


Thank you for any idea!

Sven

I don't know, Sven. I could only guess what year that might be. Does the needle still work? If the answer is yes, you can use the pattern I made for the gauge. It is at the top of this forum in a sticky note. You can print it onto a waterslide decal...

Sven I have looked at what I have, but it is different. Pictures below. The diameter of the face is 51.5mm and the connecting pins are 24.5mm (center to center). You can see the pins compared to the original pins (these are too wide). Maybe you could make it fit, but I do not know. ???

Thank you Jon, it seems that the ammeter which you have is older than my defect gauge. I try to find a ammeter from maybe Chevy C10/ C20...
Hope somebody here will see my pictures an know the year / truck form which the gauge could be...

Maybe you are right, Sven. I will keep looking. Maybe I will find a better one.
Best regards,

Just some more details about the truck. Maybe this could help to find somebody who could help me.
The truck was built/restored by Dave Chapman (The Hollister Road Company) in 2014. Dave passed away in 2018 and the previous owner didn´t know technical details. Maybe the company that modified the gauge is "Classic Gauge and Cluster" (on Facebook) ..but they did not reply on my question...

Just to complete and close this thread:

I found somebody with the right informations for me:

The ammeter is from a 1964 - 1966 Chevy truck.... wired in parallel with a shunt (cable)
