Help me Please!

I have an 87 290 MH. The needle popped off the airbag pressure gauge. The gauge is sealed and has no Mfg name on it. I've been to about a dozen supply houses, auto parts stores, air shock suppliers with no luck. No one seems to know who Mfg'ed the gauges. Can someone help me with this??? The emblem looks like a "T" with a block on both sides of the 'T'.........Thanks

I can't off the top of my head know what size gauge you have for air. Maybe 2" in diameter? Measure your gauge face and buy a new one the same size.

Kleinn Air Horns 1021 Dash mount analog air pressure gauge - 1/4" NPT inlet

Don't panic

Jeg's or Summit auto list hundreds of auto gauges. Contact them. It is moist likely a standard pressure gauge you just have to give then the range and hole diameter. 2 1/8 in. is common diameter.

It is 2 1/8. I was able to break out the plastic face (which I found out was really glass!) and remount the needle. One problem. There are four electronic attachments on the back. Red, Black, Purple and white. Between the purple and white was a small black cylindrical resistor or capacitor ( I don't know which) which disappeared somewhere between home and all the stores I visited today! I know the black was ground and the red was load, so I hooked it back up, but now the needle doeson't move! Any ideas?

If you see on this link there is a picture showing the back of the gauge. I don't know if yours has a 1/4" or 1/8" NPT fitting but yours should look like this one.

GlowShift | Tinted 7 Color 200 PSI Mechanical Air Suspension Gauge

If not please take some pictures of the gauge that you have and post them so we can see.

OK OK I finally got off my duff and went out to the Mistress to check my gauges.....sure enough my 1983 has the same gauges. My speedo had the same T with two blocks on either side, my oil and water had the name Teleflex written in the gauge face.

Teleflex are marine quality gauges so it doesn't surprise me that Airstream used them (although I did have a VDO gauge but I'm not sure that its stock). You can contact this place if you want a Teleflex gauge, HOWEVER even they may not have a direct replacement and you will pay through the nose for it.
