Does anyone know where to buy the rubber gasket that goes between the chrome bezel and the body of the instrument? See photo below. I know Moss sells the one that goes between the bezel and the dash panel but I doubt that will work.

TRF has the kit (P/N RFK632) for all the guages. I have it my Wish List (just haven't bought it yet) and it typically goes on sale every other week.

Actually, that Roadster Factory kit is for the exterior gaskets. Nisonger is the only source for the inner gasket that I know of.

This thread got me going on my instruments for the TR2. I ordered the inside gaskets for all 6 instruments, and the chrome bezel rings from Nisonger. $126 for the whole kit and kabootle. Ouch. I have not disassembled the instruments yet, but merely hope they are rebuildable. More to follow...!

If you are going to have them rebuilt , they will come back with new gaskets and bezels . Maybe you don't want to buy them first .

I've never sent anything out to be rebuilt. You mean you can do that?

FWIW, I found some small diameter silicone tubing that I think will work well for the gasket between the glass & bezel. I've also used soft O-ring stock in the past.

I'm not entirely convinced that the TR2-3 used a gasket between the gauge & panel. At least I never found any remains when disassembling various cars over the years. Later cars certainly did, though.

Lots of places will rebuild the gauges for you; but expect to pay $100-$200 each for the service.

Nisonger will . There are other places listed in Hemmings . gaugeguys.com for one . I have used Nisonger but had better luck with a local spedo shop .

All of the instruments in my 3A had the rubber O rings on them just behind the bezel. That location would seal them against the dash panel. $126 doesn't sound to bad when you consider what a complete set of nice looking instruments is worth and the visual impact they have as compared to some that don't look so good. The chances are good that your tach and speedometer work just fine and only need to be cleaned. Before sending them out for a rebuild try spinning them with a drill. If they work then all you have to do is clean the faces and glass and reassemble them. Be real careful of the needles while the units are apart cuz they bend very easily.
