Hey Tph, I am sorry to bother you but I see in your picture you have the teleflex tilt helm. I purchased the same for my 86 but it appears that the dash support will need to be trimmed in order to run the cable to the left and down the transom. I was wondering how you handled it?
Thanks, I was having a friend remake my black surround for the gauges and while that was being done I wanted to keep using the boat. So, I made a flat aluminum panel with 6 - 2 1/4 hole to mount my Volts, Hour meter, oil pressure, water temp, oil, temp, and 1 blank. all are in the engine compartment to the right of my alternator so i can lift the cover check the gauges and start. I have a Low oil pressure light in the dash and a High water temp light in the dash.
I have a tach with an over rev light/ shift light if i run it to high. and my speedometers were both sun damaged and bad. I left all the stock Items if I want to return it to original. I am purchasing a small fish finder with speed and temp or GPS with temp. I will take a picture and post it. some people think Im crazy because I'm not looking at my gauges all the time, But i have had Volkswagen's and motorcycles my whole life and they all have warning lights. Low pressure/temp warning lights that flash have saved engines for me before.
