consider purchasing gauges for marine applications - they tend to be designed with liquid exclusion as an important consideration

Hello,

    well Stewart Warner Technical Support claims none of their gauges are designed to be water tight. Equus made a volt gauge that appears vintage, next to my very early Stewart Warner Oil Temp. This oil gauge has never steamed up, but it's not "specifically designed" for weather?

Gauges are a real frustration..cheap or expensive.  None of my horses sit outside and other than the snow crew they don't even get wet..( I do not play in the rain).  Yet I have some that after mowing for a while the damn gauges fog up.

I even have a Marine Rated gauge to try next, from Triplex? "That is if this one fails".

I've seen the Triplex gauges in some of the industrial equipment at work - seem well built and robust enough but don't remember if any had the fogging issue - which is really common . I prefer SW's quality , they are one of the true legacy manufacturers left in this country and refuse to go the cheap labor route and destroy their name . Equus has always been hit and miss - I've had some in the past that lasted a very long time despite their price . You can see now why old vintage original gauges are worth so much and I don't blame folks asking a premium for them in excellent condition - far better than most of what you can buy today . Perhaps we need to start looking more at the vintage boat parts market - maybe we'll have better luck overall .

 

I'm going to do some more hunting/research...
