Jaeger 0-120MPH speedo and a Smiths 30-100 temp gauge

Another two parts from eBay. The first is a Jaeger 0-120 speedo. Actually it's an old conversion, it has a Smiths 0-120 mechanism and a reproduction face in a Jaeger speedo case.I'll put a new bezel on it with a fake tripmeter knob where the filled in hole is and it'll go in the car. Or, I might put another mechanism in it. I'm not sure, but I'll keep this face and not the one I bought earlier, this is an old reproductioon, so it's faded and aged a bit and looks very convincing.

Then I got this, a Smiths 30-100 temp gauge. That's my dashboard complete :o)

Vintage Auto Klean oil strainer and Autoklean glass bowl fuel filter

Another good eBay haul! Two Auto Klean parts I needed. The first is an oil strainer. I'm not entirely sure how this works, but I daresay I'll work it out. Apparently they come in three sizes. I wasn't aware of that when I bought it, but we'll see whether it's correct when it arrives.

The second part is an Auto Klean glass bowl fuel / gas filter.

If you have one of these and want to sell it, please get in touch using the contact page on because I know someone who wants one! I think they were also used on tractors - condition is unimportant!
