Sight glass for fuel gauge

Postby Rockxx » Mon Mar 06, 2017 7:58 pm

Evening all,
Was looking at a 32' express at my sons dock a few weeks ago and noticed it had a glass fixture over the hole in the deck were the fuel gauge is read on the boats without electric fuel gauges, such as mine. If anyone is aware of were one of these could be found I really would like to know. All I have is a hole in the deck.
Thanks,
Rockxx

Have a 32 Express also with a deck plate that could stand a replacement, key in clear deck plate on Google, the fuel gauge assembly is available from McMaster-Carr.

The piece I'm searching for is a round, perhaps 3-4" diam, chrome ring with a glass insert, slightly rounded, looks like it has some magnification. Mounts to the deck with screws. Nothing I'm finding at the marine suppliers is what I'm looking for.
