equipment vs. cold weather question

I may have a lead on a pumping system but wanted to ask if freezing temperatures over the winter would harm the Torr gauge and 1402 vac. pump (drained). There is also a spare butyl gauge in a box, does bytyl freeze or am I better off to just drain it and buy new fluid when/if needed?

The storage unit I rent isn't heated and I really don't have any extra storage space in my small apartment for more sign stuff.

My plan is to set up the equipment early 2011 when some affordable commercial space becomes vacant but that still means a 6 month storage period where temperatures can dip to -30c to -40c with the windchill. Thanks!
