Ya I had trouble with my firecat gauge when I owned it. They just fail overtime I think. Many of my buddies with that chassis have had gauge trouble. Probably just replace it cause you will be fighting with it. It either sticks and wont read properly or completely falls apart. Hope that helps you

Think they use to only be about $20. Wd-40, warm it up careful with a hairdryer, they pop right in and out.

Took mine out and epoxyed the pins back in the holes and its been great. The pounding makes them slip out after 3000 miles.

I've seen the floats swell or deteriorate, so that they can't slide freely on the post.
