Hi Desert,
Sorry no. I had an email from a truck dealer in Brisbane but they only carried a few of the guages and not what I wanted. Iv'e since had a melt down of the computer and have lost that email and can't remember the dealers name.
I would be interested in checking out the Stewart Warner Instruments if they have a web site. Can't say that I've heard of them before.

Stewart Warner's Aussie Distributer:

Plus, other distributers in capital cities:

I priced a pyro through Flexible Drive in Melb and they were $650 with sensor. (it was even more recommended retail, but he said he couldn't bare to charge anyone that price - $700+, so was going to put it through at trade). I only live up the road, so I dropped in on the way past. Guy behind the counter said they had to order pyro in from the States. However, it was definately not the Stewart Warner brand. I had never heard of them before this post. They are the best looking ones I have found, that's for sure! Seems they are a big brand over in the States. I had a bit of a look around:

Check these guys for discount prices in California:

All guages around $US 50-80 and need a SW-82505 sender

SW-82505 sender is $US 55:

Hehehe .... Desert, I just re-read the bit where you said the SW looks crap. Makes me look like a dill for saying they look good... I thought a couple of them did. Stumbled across some info - they actually made gauges for the model T Ford back in the good old days. Grab a beer and read this link:

Thanks anyway Tony, as you can see, Wazza has stolen my thunder! I'll probably import one direct from the States as I have a contact in St.Louis where Isspro have an agent.

Ta wazza. I used to fit Stewart Warner gauges into Eliminator ski boats about 20 years ago. They were well made (USA), durable and looked a bit more up-market than your run of the mill VDO stuff that everyone else was using. A bit like the old Smith brand, if you remember them, used a lot in pommy cars like Morris and Hillman. But, as I said the Pyro looks pretty ordinary.
