    Needs, Quite a few of our bunch run Autometer but I've seen anything from those to Beede to Teleflex. Just depends on what you want and what you want to spend....good luck..john

    I'm running Beede and they are just fine. Sure, they aren't the most expensive out there but they get the job done. Check with Tom at www.jetboatperformance.com

    I've got Teleflex ones now. But would like to replace with some Autometer Platinum ones. I would get mine from Rex Marine.

    Beede guages have gotten very pricey. I've talked with Rex and Tom both and have decided to go to a different brand.

    Thats too bad. Im glad that I got mine when I did. I really like them cause they are one of the few gauges out there that are domed with no lip on the edges like the Autometer ones. All the friggin lip does is trap dirt and water.
    The domed ones look period correct for the jet boat.
    The Beede gauges fit perfect and hooked up to my wiring harness without adding or changing a single wire.

    STAY AWAY FROM BEEDE!!!!!!!! They are very exspensive and everybody is dropping them. Go to lopers and get a set of Autometer's. I just did and they are fair in price.
