To the left are two styles of gauges as seen in two SNL pics..
Brands are Schrader, Syracuse, and Druge..
all should have Property of....US ORDNANCE or USQMC stamped into the body of the gauge
.

 

 

I believe I have the commonly accepted gauges that were supplied with the jeep. There are variations. The two SNL layout photos feature two different gauges. "Willys" has a ring, "Ford" has no ring.
SNL also has GAGE or GAUGE?- on same page!
I'm looking if anyone has variations from these below?

 

By the numbers above:-
1- No brand, has US PROPERTY QMC around bottom edge above knurling. Note hex collar instead of round, as on all others

2-SCHRADER has US PROPERTY QMC under brand
SCHRADER
REG. U.S. PAT. OFF.
SERVICE TIRE GAUGE
Manufactured by
A. Schrader's Son
A Division of Scovill Man Co
Brooklyn NY USA
two lines of patent numbers
US PROPERTY Q.M.C.
Another variation is:-
SCHRADER

REG. U.S. PAT. OFF.

MANUFACTURED BY

A.SCHRADERíS SON

DIVISION OF SCOVILLE MANUFACTURING CO. INC.

BROOKLYN N.Y. U.S.A.

(two rows of patent numbers, five total)

U.S. PROPERTY
ORDNANCE DEPT.

3- DRUGE
DRUGE BROS MFG CO
OAKLAND, CALIF
US PROPERTY ORDNANCE DEPT

4-SCHRADER
same as no 2 except no SERVICE TIRE GAUGE
and ORDNANCE DEPT instead of QMC
same patent numbers

5- SYRACUSE
SYRACUSE GAUGE MFG. CORP
SYRACUSE N.Y. U.S.A.
US PROPERTY ORDNANCE DEPT

6-SCHRADER
another SCHRADER, same markings as no 4
but has different throat/collar where body attaches to
small tube?
US PROPERTY ORDNANCE DEPT

Close up of brands and two property markings 

 

If you have another style would you let me know that I may update my guide. There are many gauges without the property designation-
I am only looking for QMC or ORDNANCE marked ones.. Thanks, John Barton
