Hi all,

I am looking for a brake pressure gauge that fits the FDS 737 MIP. I bought the Flight illusion one but the free space is too tiny and i didn't succeed, even twiking it, to place it.

Would be very interested by the solutions you have found.

Thanks a lot for your help.

The original MIP did not have the 2 extra Annunciators and the FI gauge fit. Even though the FI gauge is the size of a Flap gauge.

As soon as Boeing added the TAKEOFF CONFIG and CABIN ALTITUDE annunciators it made it difficult to fit the FI gauge. Customers have modified the gauge to make it fit. It can be done but at your own risk as the modification requires the gauge to be cut and extended to get it to fit.

Note: The real gauge is the size of the round opening and is held in with a clamp. So the gauge will always fit in a real aircraft. Therefore the issue is teh size of the gauge that are available and not the MIP.

Many thanks Steve for the explanation.

I tried to modify the gauge by cutting some parts but this is not enough. As far the extension is concerned i don't know how to proceed.

May be any new gauge manufacturer has a gauge that can fit (simworld gauge size seems to be the size of the round opening).

So that if customers have found the jewel, i would be very interested to know.

Have a good day.
