Autometer

Does anybody know what the mounting hole is in relation to the total width? 1/4 or 1/8 ?

I am going to be using 5 inch speedo and tach and the other gauges are 2 1/16

Thanks In advance
Rocky

If I am going to be using a 5 inch tach & speedo, what should the hole size be? not 5 inches because the gauge would fall through. same goes for the 2 1/16 gauges. Is it 4 3/4 smaller or 4 7/8

Thanks
Rocky

put some calipers on it and find the actual OD of the speedo. then make the mounting hole a few thousandths bigger.

Find the literature for the individual gauges. Autometer should supply this readily. This is the best source for the mounting info... or use the vernier and do as fairwaymike says.

I don't have the gauges yet. My friend has a 5 inch gauge. But He is out of town, I know the gauges are 5 inches across. But wasn't sure about the hole size . autometers web site has nothing about the hole size. Just the gauge dimentions.

I am building a dash this week, well today.



Thanks
Rocky

hm

If you're cutting the holes with a piloted hole saw, just make a pilot hole and space your gauge centers appropriately... or just leave that panel loose and not fastened in so you can pull it out and drill or jigsaw the holes open once you get definitive information.

Have you tried locating an Autometer tech on the telephone?

sorry I can't help much more.
