Somewhere, I seem to remember someone (Nisonger?) offering a rebuilding
service for those units.  That might be your best bet, as an accurate,
reliable temp gauge is a far cheaper investment than having to rebuild a
"cooked" engine.
The good news is that, if you are careful not to disturb the capillary
line; they last a long time.  The one I replaced (with a new, BL dealer
stock unit) in my '72 Midget, 26 years ago, is still functioning

I have a co-worked that did perform the gauge repair successfully
the instructions from the web site; his bit of advice is:

"Tell him the repair works but only if the gauge was in good shape
and if the needle is sitting on the left side peg."

Has anyone ever attempted a Smiths capillary temp gauge repair? Like 
this: http://www.ply33.com/Repair/tempgauge

Seems reasonably simple (in theory)... I haven't been able to find any 
combo temp/oil press gauges less then about $150...
