    I,m thinking to install a Isspro tach and mechanical oil pressure gauge.I want to install it in the dash panel,in the place of the olds o.e.m gauges.But i,m not sure of this gauges size.I know the tach has 2" it could be valid for the panel hole,but the oil gauge has 2,7" "sweep".Wath does it mean ?Is the Sweep the diameter?Somebody has isspro gauges in the dash panel holes?Thanks for any answer.

    I think that sweep means install depth,or it's the min. space that needs to be behind the gauge so the tube doesnt bent too much.

    I'm too lazy to stick shift,that's why I prefer autotranny.

    I put autometer guages in my truck, I got the 2 5/8" mechanical guages, got rid of the junk stock ones, they look wicked cool and acually tell me thruth about what my truck is running at. If you are interested , PM me and I can help you out on installation.

    you might want to look at my VDO setup (use the link my my signature)... I used gauges that are 2 1/16" gauges and 4" gauges...

    you could use your stock bezels with any gauges that are that size.

    The autmeters are easy, You just gotta trim the bezel, and then the guages fit right in perfect. WHen I get pics up, you can see how I did it, pretty easy and strait foward.
