Has anyone ever seen this Stork Oil Temp gauge? It is the mechanical dip stick style and it has a green light what the oil is to cold and a red light when the oil is to hot. When I got it the seller said it was NOS and the gauge holder came with the gauge and looks to have always been with the gauge. When you slide the gauge out of the holder there is clean ring around the gauge where the holder was.

We offer similar gauge holders by Aircooled Accessories , they come in black , ivory or chrome.

Hi,

I have these two VDO temp gauges, as they go to 120C, could these both be oil temperature ones?

Anyone familiar with these VDO's?

Thanks!

Peter

The first pic is of a water temperature gauge, so it's not for a VW. The redline on the dial is at 100 degrees Celsius (boiling point of engine coolant) so it's only for water cooled engines. The second pic is of an industrial temperature gauge that can be used for either oil or water temp applications, but not designed for VW.

My short 12 year experience searching for a specific VDO gauge tells me one thing. VDO was prolific in producing gauges for numerous auto manufactures.
If you can by number on back of gauge determine a time span in years, then Google images of different car (European mainly) makers may lead you to the exact automobile your gauge was produced for. The VDO archives in Frankfurt has limited info left that gives the facts you need.

I don't think VDO had a long run of producing any one gauge even for one car manufacturer.

VDO oil-temperature gauges commonly have 50~150 C temperature scales, although there were some on various Audi cars which were calibrated up to 170 C.

On German E-bay, I have seen some VDO temperature gauges with calibrated scales of 60~200 C, but I have yet to discover their intended application.

For at least 30 years, VDO have been making 40~120 C temperature gauges and a variety of matching sender units with different screw-thread sizes; some with a temperature-switch (various switch temperatures) incorporated to activate a warning light or audible warning device.

For a pressurised liquid-cooling system (typically 13 or 15 psi above standard atmospheric pressure), the boiling point of pure water exceeds 100 C.

Various mixture proportions of water & antifreeze (typically glycol) have different boiling points, which exceed 100 C at standard atmospheric pressure.

Not the kind of gauge you can put in the dash, but pretty cool nevertheless
Bowmonk acceleration and brake gauge - measures in % of G.

Until recently, mine was the only VDO Cockpit 'Night Design' instrument (i.e. VDO Cockpit 'Night Design' alternator-sensed 0~6000 rpm engine-tachometer) I have come across, but I have since discovered a few more on E-bay.

Here is a VDO combination accessory gauge unit of a type I have never previously seen, which incorporates a fuel gauge and oil-temperature gauge. Although I cannot see any measurement units specified, I deduce from the number scale that the oil temperature is being measured in degrees Fahrenheit; much favoured in the USA, but declining in use even here in Great Britain where the metric system is now the norm for most things.

I found it recently listed on British Ebay, for a prohibitively high asking price of 265 + shipping, but I thought you might be interested to see this example, which the vendor says he originally bought for his 1954 VW Beetle.

The asking price has now been reduced to 195 + shipping, which is still extremely expensive

That gauge was made by VDO for '58-'61 beetles. It fits at the top middle of the dash. It is also bulky, ugly and not desired by many people if anyone. It is a neat item, but not nearly as precious as the ebay seller thinks it is.

If I had had a vehicle for which it was appropriate, I might have stretched my budget to maybe the equivalent of US$50 for one of those, but by my standards, even a reduction to 195 + shipping, would be a silly price. Rolling Eyes
