    Morning fellow Luhrs folk - I am new the forum and am trying to track down the OEM VDO multi gauges that Luhrs used in there instrument panel's. We have a 94 35 Sportfish with twin diesels. There are two 4 in 1 gauges at the helm that show engine oil pressure, temp, fuel level, and voltage. Anyone have a part number or a suitable replacement?

    Good luck with that, there is no easy replacement without going to the new VDO ones which are a maze of wiring that has to be added. Try calling Lauderdale Speedometer in Fort Lauderdale,FL to see if they can rebuild them, it's about a month turnaround time though, the last time I checked.

    That seems odd unless the OP is going from analog to digital. Maybe have to change some sensors and plugs along with the gauges but I'd think the wiring would be about the same. Have you tried working with the company?

    They're all electronic hence the:

    Faria makes quite a few different 4 in 1 gauges
