    I also had an instrument that I came by and have been searching site after site to try and find out what aircraft it came from and what the instrument's panel depicts. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it!.

    The plate says "Fuel Indicator/Serial Number 490761/Date(blank)/Manufacturer Fuji Aviation Gauge Co Ltd".
    The gauge looks similar to the one for Ginga(P1Y Frances). For the details.

    Thanks David :)
    Japanese gauge for the 800 litters(立) is rare.
