The speedo pickup on my 93 Prostar 190 has broken off; can someone tell me if this one from Skidim.com would be the correct replacement:
(Item # 1804)
NEW STYLE; 3 HOLES REQUIRED. HAS A FLAT, TRIANGULAR BASE. DRILL NEW PETOT MOUNTING HOLES INWARD SLIGHTLY TO USE TWO EXISTING AIRGUIDE MOUNTING HOLES IN BOAT. NEW PETOT WILL FIT OLD AIRGUIDE HOLES WITH SLIGHT MODIFICATION. FLOW THRU STYLE. LESS CHANCE FOR CLOGGING! IT IS OPTIONAL TO USE THE THIRD MOUNTING HOLE AT THE TOP OF THE PETOT.
(Or if not where I could get a replacement).
Thanks!

It is Not a direct replacement but it can be adapted as it states, but I'd go ahead and replace both as they give a slight better performance. The old Airguides are no longer available as replacements IIRC.

I replaced mine with the new style last year. The new style works great, although it is not a perfect fit replacement. Unless you were looking close, you wouldn't be able to tell though.

I recommend the newer style.
