I know that mine cannot have the smart cratf guages added so you would be wise to get the serial number and check with a friendly merc/mariner dealer if it can be done.

Chris, is your gauge the same as this one?
If so what dose it tell you?
I'm I going to have to get a rev counter, fuel, trim gauge
Or can I use the old Johnson ones?

Probably not, but all is not lost. Rev counter from e bay, forget the trim gauge (a Mk 1 eye ball is much more accurate) and how about a navman fuel monitor instead of the fuel gauge, okay its 150 but gives the gph figure and total fuel used etc.

I've got that warning guage but also the merc rev guage, temp, mph and a smith hour guage.

No trim guage on my boat I`m afraid but in reality you don't actually need a trim guage anyway.

Hope this helps but make sure that the short shaft is OK for your boat!!

If it was me I would email them and get their phone number and see if you can knock them down on the phone. I expect they will be disappointed at not selling through ebay and it has probably occurred to them that the starting price was unrealistic. Got to be worth an email!

Congratulations Nick, Rosie will fly with that! Sounds like an expensive friday though!
Good luck with the fitting,

Great news.

The only issue with fitting yourself is lifting it. If you have access to something suitable save you're 's and do it yourself. As (i think) someone already suggested get a Merc dealer to check it over with the DDT once you've fitted it (before firing it up, there is a special injector or oil prime procedure).

What prop have you got (i have a few).
