Gauge ref for Chris Craft Racing Runabout?


Hi guys, Does anybody have any reference for the gauges on a C/C Racing runabout?
I'd like to improve on the blurry Dumas supplied graphics and make myself a set with my decal maker.
Ideally I'd like a nice front on photo (or pdf if anybody has it!) So I can draw over the top of it on my computer

Appreciate any help!

Cheers

The counterclockwise version looks correct for your RR...

Woodybob, I've flipped my design now to match the boat photo's
(I'd wrongly assumed they were taken at full throttle!)

I have been studying another picture and wonder if anybody can tell me what the increments are on "Oil pressure" and "Amp meter"?

I think oil is 0-30-60
...but can't make out the amps one?

Cheers

Russell,

You are correct on the oil pressure. The amp meter is -20 and +20.

The flathead 6 ChrisCraft engines turn the tach counterclockwise. The Racing Runabout dash in my photo was taken from the dock at a boat show.
