I have a k-series with an Apollo and so I have 2 temp senders: an electrical water temp and electrical oil temp from the Apollo. I would like to to find a small dual gauge to replace my std Caterham temp gauge, but I cannot find a dual electrical gauge. There are plenty of capillary / mech gauges out there, but my search for a dual electrical gauge has drawn a blank. Can anyone point me to a source please?
I put in a Spa designs dual temp gauge. Love it.
#2 Thank you - I should have said that I would prefer to keep with an analogue look if possible - although they are rather nice...
We use one gauge with a switch to select either water or oil temperature. Nice and simple.
#4 That's probably the simplest solution, and is what I've done.
How important to you is having side-by-side readings on the same gauge?
#4 and #5 - It's just a preference. The switch set up is the kit that comes with the Apollo. I would prefer not to add another switch to the dash and instead have a dual dial. Currently, I just have the oil temp connected and the water temp unplugged.
An alternative would be to replace the oil pressure gauge with a dual gauge. I have switched over to a capillary pressure gauge and I'm finding it just as difficult to find a dual mech oil pressure / electric oil temp gauge, in an analogue style...
Again, if anyone has found one, I'd be grateful for a steer.
Failing that, I guess it's digital gauge or a switch...
Take a trip down the A316 to Think Automotive really helpful & knowledgeable Company and they will give you a good discount if you tell them you are a C&L7C member.
Think Automotive is indeed an excellent outfit, and is where I bought my MOPG, but I'm not sure they offer what JP is looking for. The only analogue duals I can find are oil pressure plus water temp.
Maybe this is why many of us have opted for the two-way switch instead.
I got my capillary oil pressure set up from Think. I'll give them a bell - cheers. Didn't realise they were that close...

Have you already got the specification for the senders to ensure that you buy something compatible?
