What size hole is it? Do you have a clock or depth finder?

You are going to have to elaborate as to what you do have. By the way, we all love pictures in here. :)

currently I have
volt
water temp

The spare is the smaller of the gauge cluster, 2" I think

I would add a depth gauge. Most aftermarket gauges would fit in the existing hole, and they are nice to have when you are in unfamiliar water.

I was going to ask, but figured this guage MUST be there. I am trying to figure out wht is missing, hour meter must be on the engine or on the tach?

I just put in a Lowrance LST 3800 Depth and temp gauge in the place of my clock. Nice to know what the water temp is, too.

Depth finder is a 1 hour install, get the thru hull shooting transducer that you epoxy in the hull at the stuffing box or just fill the hole up with wore out bubble gum and paint it black!
