Well I investigated mine today, and it doesnt look like its adjustable , which is pants, when you think that the outboard will get installed on all sorts of transom angles. I'll take a photo of it, but its an arm bolted to the engine bracket that locates onto the outboard body as it comes down.. My normal running position is near its base, so the guage is off the bottom of the scale when set for normal running,..

I cant believe its not adjustable ... do you think there could be some sort of calibration on the guage its self ? , cos its just a potentiometer I think

What was the fix for this, ours is doing the same having just fitted a new sender. I am going to try another gauge to see if that helps first but there is no adjustment on the sender as the arm is keyed to the shaft on the sender.

Any suggestions?

(Realise this is an old thread BTW !)

I never got my teeth into in the end mate, and sold the boat on , but like I said.. there maybe some offset available on the guage ?

I cant remember the way it looked .. but could the arm be modified to alter its length perhaps?

The way the arm is fitted to the shaft is that is has a flat section so that you cant rotate it on the shaft so that rules out any changes there.

had similar problem last year, switch just needed a bit of lubrication, but gauges do seem to suffer from moisture
