    Why do vac gauges get stuck sometimes?

    Mine will read 7 to 8 even with the TM off, but it will reset to 0 by the next morning.

    Is it time for a new gauge?

    I like smacking things.

    But this is a delicate art and your at your own risk when doing it

    Somethings a hand slap works, others the biggest friggin hammer you can handle .

    Either way your likely going to end up replacing it , so whack away
