1969 Chris Craft Commander Gauges - Need Help With Replacement

Hi All,

Need some help -- my gauges on the lower helm (69' CC Commander) need to be replaced.  Can anyone help me with suggestions on where to find similar gauges or replacements?  Thanks

Dan

Why replace them when you could have the old ones rebuilt? Keep that authentic 60s style and resale value. See http://www.kocianinstruments.com/

They rebuilt two sets for me.

Hi Darin,

What type of cost would it be for two sets?  Just curious and thank you, I'll check this out

It’s been a while since I did it. I don’t remember the exact price. I had the Tachs converted from cable to electric at the same time. I got rid of the cable drives. This allows a modern distributor in the future too. There was a charge for the conversion and for the restoration . The gauges look brand new. No rewiring, no new sending units. No dash modification They can give you a ballpark price.
I had everything done on my 35 (no flybridge) and it was a shade under $1k for everything. I didn’t do the conversion Dain referenced.

You’re looking at probably close to $3,000 to have Koncian restore all your gauges now. The new owners charge significantly more than Dale. There aren’t any direct replacements I know of that will fit, you’ll be modifying the helm. 

I had Clawson Classic Instruments in Washington restore my gauges.

I also had the tachs converted to electric.

I also had the amps gauge changed to volts

And split my temp gaugees so I could also have fuel gauges with out adding more holes

Mark did a fantastic job

I have one used tach; it shows 1111 hours. If interested, contact me at ELS.Huntsville@gmail.com. I took photos of it a few minutes ago that I can share.

Jeremy,

What did it cost to have your gauges done at Mark Clawson?

It was around $2,600 . Certainly not cheep but exceptional quality.  Also keep in mind that a considerable chunk of the price I paid was in converting to elect, tachs, switching ammeters to read volts and turning my temp gauges  into a dual gauges that  read both temp and fuel level.

Those are nice gauges! What about us poor unfortunate souls that have post 1970 commanders with the very seventies multigauge clusters. Half of mine do not work and I'd like to punt them.
