actual measurement across the face, bezel and
all, on a 3 3/8 SW speedometer. HELP!!!

That's not the way they do it. They only go by the hole that if fits in. You will have to say what car it goes in since the Avanti and the early Hawks used a different bezel diam.

Tex, some bezels were different thicknesses. If you are buying from eBay, ask the seller to measure it for you. If you just need a basic measurement, ask any seller. Low total transaction eBayer sellers are more likely to answer, as sometimes the power sellers are too busy to help. I bought a few SW 2-1/4" gauges and they had as much as a 1/4" difference in the bezel size depending on the model. Good luck.
