Oil pressure guage, repairable???
 
Autometer oil pressure guage started leaking at the back so I took it apart and proceeded to break the little "collar" that goes around the tubing, inside the compression fitting. Any ideas on whether I can fix this or not? Can I get another piece for this or do I have to buy a whole new guage?

Yes this can be replaced,,, head to any parts house and ask for a wet line kit for a remote mounted oil guage. You will get the complete setup , hose fittings and ferrel rings, (the part you are asking about) and nuts.

The other option is to take the broken part to Home depot, Lowes and look for a 1/8" ferrel for plastic tubing.

Either way and you are set.

1. NAPA has this part,
2. It's a Copper capillary tube and fittings.
3. Cost, when I bought one 4 years ago,
4. $10.

Sweeeet. Thanks guys. I was just a little worried since I asked the local parts counter monkey and he had no clue. Should have figured that he wouldn't. Thanks again.
