Default Lotek gauge pod

I wasn't sure if this is the right forum, so if I'm in the wrong place please let me know. I had 3 gauges installed in a lotek pillar gauge pod and the guy who installed them put the gauge pod on top of the existing pillar cover. He said that was what the instructions said. He did show me how it doesn't fit correctly in some places. I though it was supposed to replace the existing cover. Does anybody know?

AFAIK they only make pillar replacements. I have the two pod LoTek unit, and it sure was a replacement unit. http://www.gaugepods.com is their site, might be able to get more info there.

Yeah it's a replacement not a cover. I've had two of them, one was a 2 pod 52mm and the current one is a 3 pod 60mm. Neither of them fit perfectly and it kind of messes with the rubber that runs along it in some places. It's mainly just looks though, it doesn't cause any air leaks or anything that i've noticed.-James

Default Dremelling?

Did anyone else have to dremel around the 60mm openings to get 60mm defi gauges to fit? I can't see why they didn't drop in..

So, what did you screw it into? Mine came with 2 screws in it and there's really nothing to screw them into... I'm getting tired of it coming loose and having to push it back in place.

You have to drill holes, I'm pretty sure it said that in the instructions. And Yes you have to dremmel it a bit for the 60mm to fit but it really isn't that bad if you take your time. -James

Oh well I got mine a year or so ago and I'm pretty sure it came with them then. Anyway I just drilled a hole in the metal for the top one since the bottom one was a PITA with the drill I had. It seems to hold up fine. Just use a bit that's a bit smaller than the screw and you should be okay, they're self tapping screws so it won't be too bad. -James
