Propane Gauge

I had my propane tank fill last week.
When I went to check the meter in the bathroom it was registering empty.
After reviewing some threads here I went to look for the on tank gauge and found it hanging by the wires.
I looks like it just snapped onto a rather large bolt as it had 6 or 8 clips (one of which was broken off and another one is cracked).
I was able to move the gauge with a magnet which did make it show up on the meter in the bathroom.

Question: Can I just adhere that to the bolt and in what orientation would that gauge have been in?
Also could I use some silicone adhesive or rubber cement?

It is not very visible from the valve access in the bay next to the tank.

Yes pics would be good but I failed to take any while I was in there.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Well what did you do? Glue the old one back on, or buy a new gauge and snap in into place?

So far I have just snapped it back in place. Took a 640 mile round trip this past weekend and still in place. I have a tube of silicone adhesive in the camper if I need it though.

There are several different types of plastic gauges out there. On mine, the internal variable resister went bad so there wasn't any signal reaching the inside tank gauge. I had to replace the plastic gauge and was shocked when the darn cheap plastic thing was $75 on Amazon.com

BTW, on mine, there was only one way to install it correctly. It had a key way that had to be matched for the gauge to fit. Also, those small plastic ears that hold the gauge on are fragile and snap off easily.
