I am pretty sure they are standard size. You can get them from India as repros. I have used these Indian ones on half a dozen vehicles over the years and they are perfect and trouble free. $93 for the COMPLETE set of 5. You can get them white face as well. They also have repro "Smiths" for Jaguars, minis and other pommy cars for the same price range. The speedo face can have miles, kilometres or both according to your taste.

I have a set of gauges (except speedometer) out of an AT4 dodge sitting in the shed. I will have to look in the next day or two to see what brand they are. As mine isn't standard we were having problems matching the voltage from the senders to that wanted by the dodge gauges. Rather than make complicated electrical boxes we went to similar gauges that worked with our senders as we couldn't find senders that fitted the engine etc that worked with our gauges.To add a photo you will see a button marked Attachments below the box where you write the text. so
1) press attachments and an add files button will appear.
2) press add files and select the photo you want to add and press open.
3) under the photo you will see a button marked insert. press that
4) the photo appears in your post like this

this is a picture of my gauge setup.
Note the anciliary gauges are 3mm smaller than the dodge ones so we had a new faceplate. If you look at the top right we decided a small tachometer was more useful then an amp gauge.
Here is a photo of the whole vehicle. There is a build thread on this forum showing the full build details back in 2020/21

Here are the Smiths instruments - only $70 for the whole lot even have correct backwards speedo and tacho. You can get them black or white face.
