The power t&t came from a 70hp. Three cylinder Mercury 1993 vintage. It's the Three ram type, ie> Two small rams and One larger ram in the middle. It came with the the mid section and transom bracket complete. The sender unit works off the pivot pin on the end of the large ram. The mounting holes are on the Left hand side of the swivel plate, as you stand at the back of the boat, facing forward. Or if you were sat on the jockey seat driving the boat. the sender would be behind you on your Left hand side.

It did work, but the readings were still the same.

Trim Gauges a Croc

I fitted two new trim gauges to my boat to find that they are a croc.

The Needles are not glued exactly in the same spot so the Trim Gauges do not reflect same reading for both motors at same trim.

I am getting new trim gauges to resolve the problem, probably going to be a swap until gauges reflect same trim.

So My move will be to find something nice to fit into the holes and piss them off.

I trust the Tried method of trimining until the props are just biting, or if planing at low speed trim down enough to keep the bow down.

Is 50hp enough to drive a trim pump?

Mine never worked properly from new and failed in the second season because the sender unit filled up with water. Saw the price of a replacement and decided I'd just turn round and look at the engine. I soon got the feel of it and just have to look occasionally now. That also means I check the cooling tell tale too.
