NOS outside/inside MotoMeter thermometer

#1 Post by Maurizio Santini » Sun Aug 19, 2018 1:31 pm

As mentioned here http://forum.porsche356registry.org/vie ... =4&t=46652 I was fortunate enough to find a NOS outside/inside MotoMeter thermometer and, in hoping to leave future references, I show here some photos.

These are photos of the "original" that was fatory installed with the car, I had open just for curiosity as it was brutally taken apart from someone else and sadly no-one nowadays can restore the capillary originally filled with ethyl, as far as I know.

According with the Workshop Manual, must be installed with a "clip lined with 2 mm thick rubber", that must be realised ad-hoc.
Fix the clip onto the first screw of the right bumper bracket, seen from car's middle.
Here also my dashboard.

Great info Maurizio...thanks for posting. That's a very nice find....and especially meeting the original owner as a surprise.
