Trim gauges work on resistance from the variable resistor on the engine and these are normally different ohms for different manufactures.

You might be lucky though but try and look into after market gauges as they will tell you what ohms your engine needs...

It MAY not work-the Yam trim sender might not be a variable resistor. I think I remember Doggypaddle having fun dismantling one and saying it wasn't.
