    Hello: Does anyone know which aircraft used a fuel quantity indicator (gauge) marked G6A/3275 ?? It appears to be about a 90 gallon gauge (85 is highest number printed on the face) . Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    I think B-25s had 90 gallon tanks, but many times gages are what you call "standard parts" and can be used in a wide variety of aircraft.

    6A is a British designation

    6A/1377 is a simillar model gauge but for 90 gallons marked.

    have a look at SpitfireSpares.com - warbird Instruments

    About 1/2 way down there is a 110 gallon Lanc gauge marked to 90 gallons.

    These guys are the bomb when it comes to parts and should be able to identify it for you. Let us know what you find out.

    That is a great site! I am forwarding that one along to the CAF. We are restoring a Spitfire in Camarillo.
