Yeah, there's lots of those early Airguides to be had, and usually for short money. For accuracy, the diaphragm type
are nice. This looks to be a Bourdon tube type, similar to the Muskegon ones. I have yet to find one that's not fixable, but the movement they used is common as dirt, and still made today.
Yep... although the body is finished, the clock is likely pressed together. Caveat... I haven't had one of these clocks in hand. For the similar speedometers, I wrap the body with a couple turns of tape and tighten a hose clamp around it, about 1/8" from the bezel. From there you can work your way around with a flat bladed screw driver, turning against the clamp to ease the body out of the bezel. They go back together with a press and a board with a hole that'll hold the bezel by the rim. ...or you can send it and I'll see what can be done.

The white on the clock face has yellowed. Any thoughts on getting it back to white, to match the speedometer?
Hey Scoot... Looking at that pic I'm wondering if it's the face printing that's yellowed or it's the lens making it look that way since the hands on the clock look a little more subdued too. If that's the model I think it is (...solid back, 702 maybe?) the lenses are glass. Replacements are available. I haven't quite figured out how they come apart yet though.
Marc, it's my pleasure, but I have to say that 'expert advice' is probably way too generous here.
Anyway... just to show how easy it is to get me to dive down a rat hole, this got me thinking about what might be the best bleed valve to use and I landed on
in the 3-way, momentary, normally open configuration. In the normal position it'd be open between the inlet and outlet ports. In the flipped position, one port is closed off (...the speedometer), and the other is vented to the atmosphere. You could easily bleed or drain the line, and it couldn't be inadvertently left open. I'll order a couple of these and see how it goes. They'll need a couple of
hose barb fittings
