I think you can find the numbers you need in the FAQ's or Tech section.

If your looking to stay original, west coast speedo can repair or reface our gauges. They did my fuel and speedo. Great work. Ask for Kevin.

There is no reason to keep stock gauges in a Defender, the VDO visions should have been spec'ed from the factory

Agreed. When West Coat repairded my LED display, they also refaced it to match the Visions series.

Dana,
I got all of mine through egauges with the help of the VDO thread here on D-90 Source. Do a quick search on VDO and it will come up. Everything was pretty easy through egauges.

To answer the original question.

Speedo is 4", which is not available from many sources, and is why VDO is so popular.

The rest of them, standard 2" gauges are fine. But not many options for the fuel gauge, as we have a real oddball sender ohm range.

I went with Autometer Cobalts, and ripped apart my old speedo to make an adapter ring to fit the 3-3/8" autometer. They have programmable fuel gauges in a number of their lineups.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.
