my understanding was that exterior mounted gauges must be able to break off with reasonable force for the safety of pedestrians. Ensuring this though, makes it an easy target for a bastard theif or something.

Your right it is a dumb rule. If a pedestrian makes it to your cowel a couple of gauges are the least of their problems.

lol, doesn't it bother you that you have oil coming into the cabin? Even if it was legal, I would convert to electrical means... I never knew they had such gauges, but yeah.. must be strange.


Cheers

the old school racers liek them for the fact they provide much more accurate and faster response to changes in oil,fuel pressure etc
the electrical ones can tend to have a dampening efect so they are not going up and down with the revs

And can be affected by voltage being produced in the system....
