    Default Fuel gage for Clipper left tank

    Looking for the boiler gage that goes in the right tank on the Clipper, same as the early Pacer as well.

    Do you have a tank with the bunge installed? It has to be forward to miss the door. Usually bottoms out with 20 minutes or more in the tank. I wanted to instal Super Cub style sight gauges in mine.

    WagAero has had them in the past.

    Steve, itís for the original left tank, not a retrofit right tank.

    Gilbert Iíve seen ďStearman fuel gageĒ at WagAero, is that the same?

    Univair has them, but each individual part, not as an assembly, and when you add it all up itís getting close to $300. Iím hoping someone that went with TriPacer tanks and electric gages might have the boiler tube from their old tank.

    Here is what I used. Looks identical to my thought to be original Clipper gauge.

    I have a what I call a "Sight Gage" off a PA-16 fuel tank. As I remember it's in good shape and working when removed to put in later model tanks with electric gauges. The only delay is finding it if your interested. I even have the fuel tank if anyone needs one of those.

    Rick, thanks. I ordered the WagAero gage. If you find it, hang on to it, someone will likely need it.
