Gauge Update For Boeing 727 (TOM7271.ZIP). This is an engine gauge (xml gauge) update for Thomas Ruth's B727. This gauge update changes the N1, N2, and EGT engine gauge calibration to reflect gauge readings within the normal and maximum ranges at TOGA (Take Off/Go-Around), MCT (Maximum Continuous Thrust), and cruise thrust settings. The original gauge readings at higher throttle settings indicated high off-scale for N1, N2, and especially EGT. The new gauge/thrust ratios may not perfectly reflect real 727 JT-8D engine settings in sim but the intent was to limit the maximum ranges. By Bry Hardee.

To install the gauge update, unzip folder and copy/paste or move all 9 xml gauges into your tom727100 gauge folder located in FSX/Gauges folder. Overwrite when prompted. That's it.
