BIG hole in the trucks instrument bezel since the temperture gauge is missing.
Any of you good people know where I can get one ?? Truck is a 1950 2R5 now in
restoration. S.I doesn't list one for 50 trucks.

Dick,

I've got one in a complete instrument cluster from a 2R. I'd have to see if it still works. Interested?

Mr. Biggs,

Yes, very much interested. I'm not sure I need the whole cluster but understand your
reluctance to break it up. Does it include the Speedo? I'm seeking the gauge for a studebaker friend so need to know costs. I'll email you off line. Thank you for fast reponse.

FWIW, there's a lot to be said for having an extra (working)speedo lying around - I am speaking from current experience, since they don't appear to be for sale, and rebuilding is pricey. Get the whole cluster!

Dick, I found that 2R cluster this morning and tested the alcohol/tube heat gage with some boiling water. The old gage jumped to life! Wonder how many years it's been since someone woke it up???[:0] I'll get the cluster boxed up and get back to you with a total.:D
