    There is no factory gauge, so you'll have to take whatever sender the gauge maker provides. 1/8" NPT is pretty standard ... the block tap should be a NPT thread. https://www.amazon.com/KOOTANS-Redu...=1+4+to+1+8+npt+adapter&qid=1620572133&sr=8-3

    If you buy the Stewart-Warner electric gauge that's closest to what came in the Renegades and such, they require this sender:

    You notice that it comes with a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter. They don't tell you what the sender specs are, because they want you to buy their product.

    Anyone have a line on a good source for phenolic or billet carb spacer for a 2GC to a Dauntless? Just got home and the one I bought two weeks ago showed up while I was gone. The seller on EBay said it fit but it’s too big.

    Summit has some that say they fit, yet in the comments folks say they don’t fit and were returned. Same with My two FLAPS.

    I know I’m far from the first person to do this so I’m hoping another member here can say “I bought this one and it fit” and share a link.

    Edit - I think this is it in case anyone else needs one:

    Ignition parts - Not Imported from China

    I have bought several hard to find items from "Classic Military Vehicles" over the years and have been pleased with the quality of everything I have gotten from there.

    The tune up "kit" I installed only a couple of months ago in my 67 CJ5 suddenly lost spark today. I determined the condenser had failed by replacing it with the one from my other running Jeep. This kit was from a reputable supplier, but I suspect it is a Far East import.

    I looked at several suppliers sites, all have condensers, but since they do not specify the origin I suspect they are Asian imports.

    Not wanting to buy another POS I did some more searching and found that "Classic Militrary Vehicles" lists "Blue Streak" brand components, which should be good quality. I ordered a couple of condensers and contact points from there.

    Quality brake line kit for early CJ5.

    I recently finished replacing all components of the brake system on my 67 CJ5, with an upgrade to 11" drum brakes all around.

    Many suppliers offer brake line kits, but most I could find were for the brake system with the front lines on the axle going into short flex lines at the knuckles, such as was used on some CJs and on M38A1 Jeeps.

    Problem is my Jeep has the system with the front line routed under the radiator going to longer flex lines on the frame which connect directly to the wheel cylinders. I had to do a lot of searching to find a kit for that.

    I finally found the appropriate kit at Walcks and want to mention how pleased I am with the kit. It fit perfectly and having 11" brakes instead of the stock 9" posed no problem at the rear either.

    It was a feat of some magnitude routing the frame line going to the rear, but once I managed to snake it through all the obstacles it too fit perfectly at both ends.

    It is a very good quality kit, and I think it well worth the price considering the trouble, and time it saved me had I fabricated my own lines.
