    Yea, they look similar but not the same. Don’t know if you can have the gauge rebuilt, maybe try and contact autometer?

    I have contacted them on this and they do not rebuilt them. It's possible some other aftermarket shop that does gauges rebuilds them but may not be in ones best interest to maybe more than what it's worth even more than a used one.

    They just finished roasting a Chicken, so that's why it's still showing 165F.

    That would be my guess.

    Similar to deals you can get with "Open Box" items at say, Best Buy, this Oil Temperature Gauge now lives in a Boost-Gauge Box, so that's kinda' like an "Open Box" deal.

    Nothing whatsoever to worry about.

    Hahaha right too funny.. I posted this somewhat tongue and cheek. Buyer Beware Diablo I wouldn't buy this to add to the other mantle piece Oil Temp gauges you already own. :)

    True. I did read the actual description on that and the description reads guaranteed to work but he does not accept returns
