A really neat way to install your aircraft hydraulic setup is with pressure gauges from a warbird. The type we like to use have no sending unit. Pressure is ran directly into these gauges. These gauges are rated for 2000PSI but that is fine on a aircraft setup because most put out between 1000-1400PSI. We have updated this page now that we have mounted the gauges in a nice switch panel for our aircraft setup.
We like to use push button switches for our aircraft setups. Push buttons give the vehicle a authentic touch with the aircraft hydraulics.
Here are three warbird hydraulic pressure gauges.

Here is the back of the unit where pressure is ran directly into the gauge.
Here is another view of the gauges.
Here is a old school switch panel we had made for a two pump front / back aircraft setup. Thank you Bernie.
Switches are installed in the panel. This setup uses push button switches. The two gauges are also installed.
The panel was wired by Jay. After wiring many modern switch boxes Jay quickly finishes this wiring job.
Here is the panel.

Old school all the way.
Working the switches of a aircraft setup is different than modern setups.
Here are some more gauges waiting to be installed in aircraft hydraulic switch panels.
