Is this a 914 Gauge?

Does anyone know if 914's had a gauge like this? I've seen similar but not with the readouts on the side. Waddaya'll think?

Nope - 911 fuel and oil tank levels.

That's my guess too. Although I thought they were a 914/6 and 911 gage.

oops

I bought this one for $25 on ebay. The guy misspelled Porsche and I was the only bidder. I have tried to find one for my other 914 with no luck. Someone on this forum probably could help you get ahold of one. Happy hunting!!

I contacted the seller and, come to find out, he has numerous 911 & 914 gauges for sale. I don't know what year 911 it's off of.

oh

I am pretty sure that your guage is from a 911. I have tried to find out whatyear model etc my guage came from too. I have the thing and still dont know. It really cool though. I spliced into the wiring for the center console oil temp guage and run my combo temp guage from it. Much easier to keep an eye on while you're driving.

I have a working one of those Scott. I just wanted one with the oil temp. I'd really like to find one with the fuel, oil & amps. I'm getting so many things to put on the lil' car that I prolly won't be caught up for a month! Thought I heard a brake dragging today... Oh boy! something else to learn

I hear that! you might try finding a curved oil temp guage and modifying the guage you currently have... a great rainy day project

I just scored a 2.4l six engine (for real cheap)... As soon as Wayne's book comes, I have a new project... and I don't have to finish it anytime soon because the 2.7 is running great! Of course, it'll need some upgrades....

All things considered, I like having a money pit that goes fast

Geoff (Bleyseng) is correct. My 76, without console, has that type gauge in the dash.

And my 74 with a console has the gauge with the BIG brake light. But, I was driving home one night and that BIG brake light starts flashing. I've only had the car a couple months so since the gauge wasn't labeled I had no idea what this ment. It wasn't far to my house so when I got there I noticed a severe oil leak. So at that point I assumed the BIG red light was an oil pressure light. But after reading the manuals and here that light should be the E brake. Is this the brake light in all 914's and some past owner just miswired the guage?

According to the Haynes manual, pp.109, it has 2 functions. It also flashes when half the braking system has failed leaving the other half working. Pretty cool, huh?

Ok, it is similar to the one used on the far left in all 911s. This particular gauge is from '67 (I think) to '73. The very early 911 had green gauges, and the silver button in the center went away in '74 (just like 914s).

This gauge was never used in any type of 914 or 914/6 - an oil tank level sender was never part of the 914 oil tank. I believe the diameter of this gauge is 90mm.

Moving to the right one spot on the 911, there is a 100mm gauge that has oil temp and oil pressure. This gauge was used in the 916 in the spot where the 914 fuel gauge goes. A 2 1/16" diameter fuel gauge was installed at the top of the center "deposit" for fuel level.

The regular 914/6 did not get an oil pressure gauge, but used the 100mm combo gauge like the one used in '74 and later non-console 914s. This gave oil temp on top and fuel level on the bottom.

On my car, I am using a '73 911 oil temp and oil pressure gauge in place of the fuel/warning light gauge. I will either install a separate fuel gauge in the console or build on into the bottom of the tach like a 930 boost gauge.
