Scott,

If you were working the truck then I would buy new just because of time constraint.Fix on sunday, truck on monday.But since youre restoring it slowly, get some qoutes and send them out to be restored.Theres a half dozen outfits in the Parts and Services section that can make those gauges look and work like new for less than the cost of new.Just fedex them out, then wait.John

I have found the new SW stuff to be junk (or may be I just had a bad one) but they are no longer made in the US. I put a temp (mechanical) in my truck and it stopped working 1st time out ( either leaked out of the tube). put a Autometer unit in as it had a better range for my truck then Isspro (140-240)  most geared towrad the automotive market are 100- 265 or 280 which puts the "useable range too small. My engine runs in a 10deg window in most circumstances (195-205)

Speedway Motors in Lincoln, NE has them.  Just bought some temp senders from them.   Nice for me
since I can walk in and pick them up.

www.speedwaymotors.com

www.surpluscenter.com has a varied assortment of gauges.  Found some good deals from them over
the years.  Also in Lincoln, NE. 

Since both of them are local for me, I've never had anything shipped, but both are great to
deal with in person.  If anybody wants some 'boots on the ground' help with either of them, let
me know.

Scott,, try Summit Racing... www.summitracing.com  I bought my 2 rears temps guages from them for about $40+ each. They carry the whole line of SW,, and they are here in Reno, if you need me to go by sometime.. Put the SW part# in the search, its usually faster than clicking all the + and arrows..

Napa's vary from store to store too.  Some of the independents will make you a good deal.

I've also been hearing from local sources lately that SW has flipped their lid. Prices are through the roof, don't order anything and expect to have it this year, etc. Ebay is a good source as others have pointed out. But try the dealer too, I recently got a capillary style temp. gauge through the dealer for about $135 and it's an exact match for the original KW version which I couldn't find on Ebay.

Cheers,
David

SW is notoriously hard to deal with these days, I have heard from multiple sources.  GO ON EBAY.  You can get used SW gauges for $10-$30 and new ones for $20-$100, depending upon what it is.  Don't pay retail for the electric temp gauges-they are all over the place.  I bought ten of them brand new on eBay for less than $30.  On the speedo, you may have to buy a used one and have it cleaned up.  But buying new from SW-that is a last resort.  SW Water temp gauges are on there new all the time for $100-$125, and yes, some with the long capillary.

Look in the "parts and service" section,,  look under "cabs interior" (or something like that).  There is a link to Stewart Warner.  Looks like they have at least 3 "grades" of gauges.  You can also find and contact a distributor in your area.  

You're right,,, those prices sound too high..  I once bought an oil pressure gauge for about the money you mentioned,, but it was a waterproof gauge for use in a cab-less farm tractor...
