engine synchronization gauge

Post by Lucky7 » Thu Feb 06, 2020 10:20 am

Hello Everyone,

I have a 1989 10.8M Trojan International. The VDO Engine Synchronization Gauge sticks, meaning it works some of the time. But at times it looks wrong and you have to "knock" on the gauge to make it work again.

I have checked all the connections on the back of the gauge and they appear good and tight. I am assuming this is a problem internally within the gauge itself. I can not find a VDO replacement gauge online. I don't see any for sale at Beacon Marine. Does anyone have advice on how to clean or fix this gauge?

Beacon Marine often has items that are not on the website. You might want to give Bob a call at 609-713-4602.
