Does anyone know if the older 8n gauges had the glass bezel made out of brass or steel?

Both. Original 8N AMMETER, 30/30, the 'loop' style induction gauge, were steel bodied, brass bezel, painted. Oil gauge, 0-50 PSI, made by The Stewart-Warner Corp. were all steel bodied. Both had bezels painted Ford Semi-Gloss Black Enamel black. FWIW: The early 9N used a 20/20 terminal amp gauge on the first 4000 units, then switched to the LOOP style. Early 9N gauges had chrome plated bezels. Oil Gauge has the STEWART-WARNER script logo on back. I have a bunch of correct, working, original gauges if interested...email me if so.

Do you mean the Proofmeter? Only mid to late 8Ns used one and thereafter. If so, then I'd say the bezel was black if that's all you wanted to know. What does it matter? It has nothing to with function. Most aftermarket ones sold today have black bezels.

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
