Photos of the steam gauges for the 1215 have been uploaded into the photo gallery.
Here's the description from Hugh Crawford:
These gauges, as you see, are "double spring" meaning there are 2 Bourdon tubes linked together mechanically. These are more accurate gauges.
Here's what's been done so far:
Disassemble and clean - they were packed full of mud dauber mud.
Bead blast the cases and paint with high heat engine enamel.
Both linkages with hair springs were ultrasonically cleaned. One spring was straightened and reattached to the shaft and the shaft was straightened. - This was done by a Swiss trained jeweler.
Strip and polish the brass rings to secure the glass.
Ordered tempered glass
Need to do:
Paint faces, install glass and needles, dead weight test through their operating range.
Any comments are welcome. I'm learning on this one.
Thanks to Al Paolo at CSRM for his advise and help straightening the dented face. Leonard for his gauge restoration and face painting advise.
