hmm. Sounds like your mechanics are working (gas is getting through) but your gauges might still be sticky from beer residue.
Never had the problem (knock on wood) so I'm not sure how to help. Were you able to get into the gauge dials and cleane everything completely? I'm thinking some WD40 in and around but I could be wrong.
Might be worth another $49 to replace rather than risking an ongoing problem.
