Speedometer Question '96 205

I'm needing to replace one of the Airguide speedometers in my '96 Prostar 205. Since those speedo's seem to be hard to come by, what replacements would work with minimal modification? On Ebay, I regularly see ones removed from early 2000's Mastercrafts, but would those work? Thanks for the suggestions as I have never changed out a boat speedometer before.

I have used FARIA's in another boat. Out with the old and in with the new. As long as you have (if I remember) a 3 1/4 hole. they are not adjustable though.

Ha....I am considering perfect pass. If I found the correct diameter, do they all pretty much plug up the same?

With the last post I was referring to the speedometer, not the perfect pass.

Are you sure the speedo is bad and it isn't a clogged pitot or leaky line?

Maybe some one will have one to sell since many on here install PP and have a spare.

I would first check the line, ballast and pitot. The ballast are mounted on the gas tank. If you remove the rear seat you can see them.

If you are looking to trouble shoot, just swap the lines going to the back of the speedos on the dash. That will help you figure out if it is the tubes or the speedo.

I seem to recall a company that restores the old airguides too. Maybe someone knows of a website.

If you have plugged lines, see the Slow Reacting Speedo thread for my solution. Pretty dramatic photos at the end. Might help. I'm also thinking of adding a GPS speedo.
