Default What are the official instruments used on an SdKfz 251D?

The handbooks are not exactly detailed with the specifics... And the instrumentation tends to vary on the restored vehicles.

I'm just curious what the official is instrumentation actually was?

This is what I have seen:

1) 0-10 kg/cm2 dual air pressure gauge

2) 0-5 kg/cm2 oil pressure gauge (though I have seen 0-10 and 0-16 on new restorations).

3) 0-3500 rpm Tachometer

4) 0-80 km/hr speedo

5) 0-100 degree oil temp (though I have seen 0-120 and 0-160 on new restorations)

Bosch HAW 12/2 ignition switch. The only differences I've noticed between it and a 12/1 is that the 12/2 uses a rounded headed key and the 12/2 uses a dogs/birds headed key.

Tachometer would have looked a lot like a panzer tach, but in reverse. Red on the right and green on the left.
