A small digital voltmeter would be ideal.
Maybe check McMaster-Carr and other electrical metering suppliers or use a round auto gauge to match what you have if you can find one that goes 0-5 volts.

That would probably fit in, in numerous places throughout this thread.

the best i can come up with is a digital panel meter. http://www.virtualvillage.com/mini-r...01480-182.html

they are all over ebay. they are the only kind i can find that goes to 0 volt. i just need to make sure the power feed is 12 volt. and that it is small enough to fit and not look gaucky. but they are cheap.

Here's an even cheaper one. DC Voltage Panel Meter
I think it has 12 volt connection to power the gauge and two other wires to read whatever you monitor. You might want to check that and be sure before you buy though. Any DC Voltage Meter should read from 0-whatever is specified for the upper end.

yes thats how most that i have looked at wire up. not all of the meters go to 0. and i couldnt find any auto type gauges that did either. all automotive gauges are usually 8-16 volt range. and it has to be digital to get the .1 volt accuracy. our panel builder guy showed me these type of gauges. when i searched ebay there was over 7000 hits! lol so there is a good selection. the one you posted looks good. i just want to make sure of the size of any before i buy on payday. if i would have originally known i was gonna use this i wouldve off set the wideband in the radio delete panel. so thats why i want a small one so it dont look funny. i like everything symetrical and even. lol

Every Digital DC voltage meter I ever installed at the Power Plant I worked at had the ability to go from 0 to whatever the upper limit was, but those were expensive industrial panel mount meters, so maybe that's the difference.

Yeah, I've got to many different mechanical and electrical systems running around in my head and it's easy to get them mixed up sometimes.


Asking questions is how you learn. I drove the local mechanics nuts before we got the internet.


Gotta' crash, TTYL.

No Antiques Road Show and I hate Wheel of Fortune, but I loved to watch me some Benny Hill back when it was on.

With me you never have to be worried about that. I can take a joke and lots of ribbing.
I only get mad when someone gets mean and nasty with me.

What a bargain! You scored good on those.
P.S. If they are "age hardened" there are ways to deal with that.

That's an excellent idea and one I intend to copy if I'm ever able to race again.
We did it back in the day too, but were usually stuck using heavy steel wheels as the aftermarkets were to expensive for most of us to afford to buy two spares for our slicks.
Ahh, the good old days, I'm sure glad they are over.

Ok, I will try.
Slicks and tires in general are made of basically un-cured rubber. Any tire and slicks especially, left sitting for long periods of time will begin to "cure" or harden. To combat this and bring some useful life back to the tire they make "treatments" for the tires.
One of these is Formula V Traction Treatment. Properly applied it will revitalize the tire for better traction and increased life.

All right, just remember about paybacks Steve.


I think you will like the Formula V. It does work very well and has rejuvenated numerous old slicks for me and my cousin.

Does that work on any "rubber"?
