It's unlikely that only the gauges will need to be replaced. The internal parts are probably shot as well after being out in the weather for an extended period. So, with the cost of a guts rebuild kit you will be approaching $40 anyway and you still have a used reg, not a new one. There are a lot of used ones in circulation.
