Looks pretty solid, they don't make em like they used too! I bet the manual is long gone though...

Nope. Still got that as well. I'm pretty sure it came with all of the parts too.

Mainly the whole reason behind this thread was the gauge and cleaning of the unit. There are several types of gauges. Pivot, oil filled, liquid filled, exc. I didn't want to ruin the gauge with a shot of grease or sinthetic oil. But after some thought I came to the conclusion that the gauge was filled with viscous oil. Most of the time this is the type of gauge used for moderate steam pressures. The oil prevents damage to the guts of the gauge from the steam pressure. This may explain it's longevity as well. Who knows. This is a very old gauge, so i'm not even sure if it's oil filled or not. But it's fine regardless and i'm not taking it apart to find out...
