520 gauge replacement

Recommended Posts

Has anybody tried to replace the volt gauge by just easily persuading the plastic dash to bend enough to sneak the old gauge out and a new one in? I did that on a hour meter on a different tractor years ago but the volt gauge maybe a different story all together. If disassembly of the dash is required I don't believe I am up for that. It's just more than I want to bite off right now. So how about it, anybody tried the cheating method with any success.

My 94 doesn't seem to bad from the back with the battery removed...

Yes , I did just loosen up the plastic dash cover on a warm day in the sun to change out the volt meter on the '95 I bought last spring also cheaped out with a $20 replacement from Advance Auto, Jeff.

I sorta did the same thing when I changed out the hour meter. I used a heat lamp and warmed up plastic dash very carefully.
