Default Convincer gauges

I have a bad volt and water temp gauge in my 99 259.I can't find any name brand on the gauges but the clock says Gaffrig.Id like to find matching replacements.Anyone have a idea what brand these might be or where to get them? Thanks

If you can, post up some pictures of the gauges. If they are the same as the ones in my 98 Convincor, I can send you my stock ones. I replaced all of mine with Autometer when I put the new motor in and the stock ones are just sitting in a box. They all worked perfectly when I took them out.

That would be great! Could not figure out how to get pics up. Had to get a friend to do it. Hope you can see them.
Thanks a million!

Sorry, mine are black faced. You might have to pull one of them and see if the brand name is on the back. I wish I could have helped you out more.

No problem thanks for the offer.Were you able to use the old connection plugs with the new Auto Meter gauges?

My stock ones had ring lugs on posts, so I was able to cut the rings off and attach the wires to the plugs that came with the autometers. The hardest part of the job was contorting my body and hands to get behind the dash to tighten everything down all while keeping the gauges straight. To me, it was really worth the time and money to put the new gauges in. It really updated the looks of the dash.
