    ammeter frequency and voltage gauges

    so it seems like these are always needed. brand new ones are extremely expensive. even used ones are a bit pricy for a 20-30 year old gauge that may or may not work. there are other gauges out there but then they dont match your panel or drop in. i have been working on actual digital drop in...

    002 breather

    Just an unimportant question/observation....I notice the 002 has a crankcase ventilation system on it. A small canister with a hose that runs to the intake. I just find it strange that the 002 has this but the 003 does not. Anyone got any idea why?

    somethin cool to add to the mep

    this is nothing earth shattering but a cool little tweak. i found it a bit annoying i always have to run and get a screwdriver to open my control panel face. i wanted to keep the 1/4 turn style fasteners so i removed the mispec ones from the panel, took an 1/8" drill bit and drilled out the 2...

    Noise suppression filters
