Eagle VDO Air Pressure Gauge Sender ?

This is a public forum to discuss Eagle related technical issues. If you are having a problem with your Eagle, this is the place to find help.


Which sender is used for the VDO air pressure gauge with the Eagle Logo on it? I need to match the sender with two gauges I have. I assume the numbers on the back of the gauges would tell me, they are differant. The rear has a differant number than the front. I have looked on the net and I can't find out where to get any information. A part number would be great, Thanks.

Paul

If you talking about the Eagle model 20 air gauges for the front n rear brake system on the dash. 1 line of the gauge goes to service interlock and the other line goes to a pressure switch. To my knowledge it does not need a sending unit to measure the air pressure in the system. How about some other people's comments on this to make sure I am right???

Hope this helps

How is the gauge going to know what the pressure is without a sender? They work off reading ohms. A pressure switch is different, it has a set point of psi when it gets to that point, the contacts close and a signal is sent to a warning device.

I'm just not sure if the senders would be different because of distance the smoke has to travel.

Heck, I might just go manual and forget the little birdies on the gauge! :lol: They sure are cute though. ;) I'm sure it might be more accurate anyway, just plumb it and go.

Geeez, this is my anniversary! One month on the Eagles International site since I joined. Hot Dam :!:

I think our Eagle 20 gauge is different than what Paul is asking about. The Eagle 20 gauge is a single large gauge with two needles. I don't remember mine having an Eagle on it. The dual gauge works a little differently. One needle tells you your air pressure, and the other tells you the pressure going to the brakes when you press the pedal. I plan to change mine to the dual Eagle gauges at some point down the road.

Mine are VDO and have the Eagle they are not electric but manual,Dan should have a parts number,I may be mistaken but I belive all VDO gauges us the same sender,as for smoke Paul can pick up a supply from any air line close to his gauge dosen't have to come from the air tank

Thanks Clifford,

I figure if you don't know then who does? :lol:

I'm leaning to go with manual type anyway, it would be easier and more of an accurate reading. I hate it that I won't use the little birdie gauges though! ;) I won't tell you what I paid for the cluster! :oops:

I have one white face with a dual needle that I might use for now, then when I turn it into a dual system add another one.

Heck, I would trade the whole works for an oil pressure elec. gauge with an Eagle on it! ;)
