Somehow I managed to lose not one but 2 of these gauges. The first one I loaned to someone, but that was about 15 years ago and it never came back. I bought another this past winter, and when I went to use it today, I couldn't find it. I searched all 3 garages to no avail but I did find some tools that had been missing since last summer. I am hoping that someone who has already purchased one and no longer needs it will like to recoup some of their investment. I will need the shims which I can get from my local dealer, but if you have them it will be a bonus.

Today I purchased a gauge on eBay for $11.95 plus tax including free shipping. I have some spare flat-faced couplers and a 2' piece of hydraulic hose so I will make one up. Who knows, I might just find the one that I purchased this winter hiding somewhere in the garage. So far I have found a bunch of other items that I forgot about just waiting to be discovered. It is just like an Easter egg hunt for tools! :p

I know the feeling. Don't know how many times I put something where I KNOW I can find it and when I need it I can't find it anywhere.

Shortly after you buy, or make up another,......you will find the one that you knew you had!
I have a garage, and two large storage buildings,... so I know of what you speak!

The only thing that I haven't been able to lose or misplace is the wife, but it hasn't been for lack of trying! :ROFLMAO:

I have to keep her, since she cooks, bakes, does laundry, and takes the dog out while I sleep in the morning. After 50 + years, I have kind of become accustomed to her idiocies, like you are going too fast or going too slow. It is like having a parrot on my shoulder every time I get behind the wheel driving her somewhere. I now tell everyone that I am "driving Miss Daisy".
