2. Tack went high when engine above Idle, Ive heard this is possibly from vibration. Where does the tach lead connect to the engine?

3. Fuel Gauge was dead, Not sure where to start there?

4. Amp gauge was frozen / dead in the middle. Where does this connect to the engine.

All gauge fuses showed voltage on the voltmeter at the fuse box, and fuses were good.

Ideas and Pictures of locations would be a great help!!! Thanks.
Just in case you missed it, anyone have any pics or can help with the locations?

Fuel problem solved, Problem was the back flow connector, replaced with normal brass connector, fuel flow returned to normal.

Now on to the Gauges, any input on locating would be a great help. (See above)

Hi BareFootJoe,
I'm reviving a 1980 PowerSlot, have a leak on the driver's side of the main stringers, not sure if it's exhaust but wanted to ask you to clarify if you could have removed the exhaust out the back of the boat or if you/we do in fact need to pull up the floor? My dealer said the muffler will pull out the back of the boat along with the 4" hose that goes to the exhaust manifold, the connection between the two is under the floor. I'm trying to avoid ripping up the floor to check the exhaust system for leaks. I might pull the gas tank out and try to reach around the floor board to feel for a leak. My PO replaced the stringers so there isn't another (bigger) reason to rip up the floors.
Thanks!
John

You are correct, it will slide out the back, just take out the screws around the flange and pull it out, you will probably need someone in the boat to help guide the exhaust hose down and out, its a very snug fit coming out of there.

What is this back flow connector? I am having a similar problem on a '79 and I am not sure what this is...I checked the entire fuel delivery and all appears to be normal and functioning but I am not getting sufficient fuel flow to the carb.
