Just wondering because it looks old, the white numbers and S letter are not perfect, but the 2 screws make me crazy have never seen that on the R Model. I only have this pic.

This is the way the oil pressure gauge looked when I bought 5S275 in 1988. Some years later a shop
in Riverside, CA, United Speedometers, painted the needle  with the correct paint. They also replaced the bezel.
Can you show pictures of the sides and back of the instrument.

I thought white is correct on the R Model? But all Gauges I have seen dont have the 2 screws, thats why Im wondering.

   The one I have is a MoMa "relabel" and the CS logo looks VERY similar in that it is not "crisp". Original CS logos were very nice , unlike the one in your picture and the one on my dash.
