My ammeter is dead. There is no continuity across the terminals. Does anyone know where can I get it repaired?

I have had the Tachman repair several instruments for me:

He does nice work and his prices are what I would consider reasonable.

I removed the gauge cluster and check all the terminals and it turns out that the gauges are good. The oxidation on the terminals was so bad that I had to scratch through the oxidation to get continuity. Used vinegar and salt solution and a very fine steel wool. It worked very well. Thanks for the information on where repairs could have been made.

Another vote tachman. They have a good service, and the price is very reasonable.
