All wired in. But still no cigar. Gauge is in the dash, could be the gauge but from what I read on the 'tinternet it seems like the sender.

It should be fairly easy to check the guage just find the cable that runs to the sender and bypass the sender to see if you get a reading.

I would have thought a sender for that engine would not cost a huge amount to replace and it would not be difficult to change

I had a look on eBay international for <yamaha trim sender> and there are quite a few people selling them not sure if they are the correct type but it looks like 60 seems normal.

Otherwise keep an eye on ebay UK for one or phone a dealer.

There's no reading from the sender at all.
Thanks for that Chris. Just had a look and they look different. Where they are round, this is a small square ish box with a small lever on top.

If the bow goes under trim out, if you take off trim in, easy.

Bet you wish you had an SR4 with none of that fancy stuff on!

I looked into this at length.......
the yam senders are expensive and rubbish.
the answer i came up with but have yet to impliment is a stainless bowden cable up into the powerhead where i can mount a cheap cermet linear potentiometer with an arm to the cable and use that to operate the trim gauge.
The electronics side is Pi** simple but as previously mentioned you need to arrange the cable to either have enough travel to allow for tilt, or be operated by a lever arm which can be left behind when tilting. again fairly simple but very time consuming to do a neat job.
to date i aint been arsed to do anything
Chewy has the idea
