Tank levels & trim - Ohms 'r'us.....

OK, I'll admit I've had a beer. I'll also admit the dead trim gauge on my console has been annoying me. Not because I actually need a reading off it, (The engine note tells me what I need to know), it's just that having a dead gauge is annoying.

Anyhoo, I was perusing Lowrance's assorted NMEA2K gauges (same series that gives me coolant pressure & head temp on my plotter on the off chance they have produced a "tacho" NMEA sender and I can consign my old plotter to engine data and get a shiny new one to tell me where I am) however, I digress.... I noticed that the fuel sender one has two bare wire ends.....

...and apparently can be calibrated to read US or EU tank senders.

EU sounded interesting, as apparently that is 10-180 ohms.

Can anyone confirm my hazy memory that a Yammy / appropriate Mariner trim sender is 10-167 or so ohms......?

No prizes for guessing where this thought is going......

And before you ask, yes, my 1960s designed engine is talking to my plotter already!
