Description

Nice old cockpit dashboard gauge from the 1960s. This is a BMEP gauge, which stands for "Brake Mean Effective Pressure", & it measures the average force pressing the pistons down & producing torque. The US Navy procurement information & the gauge serial number & other nomenclature is stamped into the tin plate on the back. The gauge has PSI readings up to 320, the gauge has two separate needles, & this gauge was American made by Manning, Maxwell & Moore, Inc. I don't know if the gauge is operational, & someone added red & white markings, perhaps using paint or nail polish, to the edge of the glass at 260 & 280 psi & at the 6 o'clock position. The glass is intact, the connectors appear clean, & the gauge is in good condition. The gauge measures about 3 1/4" square & about 3 3/4" long. It weighs about 13 ounces. in good condition. FREE shipping within the United States. I'll gladly combine shipping with other items whenever possible. For shipment elsewhere, please contact me for a shipping quote.
