Vacuum Gauge

Looking for any and all information on this Vacuum gauge. I took it out of this truck F10JR446633
The truck had a 292 or 312 in it, possibly from a car. The vacuum gauge was mounted in the cab. Anybody can help, I'd appreciate it.

I had an old motorhome that had a gauge exactly like that. I guess they put them on all the Ford and Chebby motorhomes in the 70's.

Are you looking to replace it?

Apparently this is the company that made or marketed Motor Guide gauges...they've probably been out of business for a while.

Looks like it's in great shape. Is there a bezel on it?

I do have the bezel for it. The plastic lens was cracked and warped. I was able to remove it. (very carefully) so I can test the gauge. The gauge works great. I just have to put a new lens on it. Thanks for all your information.
