Good thought David. If all my friends, plus one more, contribute $9,500 each, it could be mine!

Just as random observations, the manifold pressure gauges on the cluster on ebay all say "Inches Mercury Absolute" on their faces in what appears to be raised black letters below the needle pivot point. There are three pipe/tubing connections on the unit that would indicate three mechanical boost gauges, however two gauges show ambient pressure and one less than ambient but not zero. There's clearly a defective gauge that warrants a price reduction. That may get the purchase within the range of some members GoFundMe efforts and/or the number of friends they'll need. I jest about the price reduction of course, but now I'll spend the day wondering why one gauge would read low.

I think the gage merely needs a calibration adjustment. All gages require that from time to time to maintain accuracy. I would bet these gages have never been calibrated since they were manufactured. I used to do exactly this job when I was on active duty. We had a Gage Calibration Shop and had a tracking system to keep up with all the gages we had to calibrate. Literally hundreds on a large ship. Anyway that is a good catch but in reality I don't think it is any defect in the gage itself.
