This came up recently. After some wine, I think its for an optional trim gauge.

I have a feeling it's either power to the tacho or signal to the tacho. Can you post a pic of the controls and I'll dig out the wiring diagramme for them. The early ones didn't have a trim gauge option as far as I remember.

No prob. They look like the old style mercontrols with the blue/silver striping-am I right?

It was for sale on here too actually.They go quite well with those bluebands on (same engine bar graphics) but a tad thirsty. 14" pitch prop works best from memory. Out of interest, how much? Pm if you prefer...

I was wrong,Tim M is right- it's the feed from the trim sensor to the gauge if you've got a trim sensor fitted. Tape it up if you don't. See here for the trim sensor wiring diagramme:-
