Yamaha Tacho

Hi
Looking for some advice. The LCD is going on my tach - see photo. Are second hand ones likely to be available or am I looking at buying a new one?
If anyone knows the serial number that would be great as a search on eBay throws up lots that look similar but not quite the same!
thanks in advance.
Neil

That Yamaha marine multi-function tacho has probably been superseded a number of times. More details here: 2014 Yamaha MRP Catalog

You might get the same older gauge as you have on Ebay. Check the reverse, there will be a part number somewhere I'd have thought.

What's the year of the engine?

Yamaha tacho - bit of advice re poles and wiring

Hi
Mike kindly sold me his spare tacho and it is almost identical to mine and the LCD screen is perfect - thanks.

Two questions;

Where should the yellow wheel be set? I'm sure I'm being thick but it isn't clear to me which part of the wheel should line up with the number even!

All the wiring is indentical and fits the connectors except there is an extra black wire (comes out the gauge with a blue wire seperately ot the other wires. I'm guessing this is an earth for the instrument light?

Any advice gratefully received as ever.

Thanks
Neil

Black/Blue wire is the light. Black is negative of course.

Thanks very helpful - tried earthing the black wire and as you say the dial lights up.

In terms of the pole setting which part of the yellow disc lines up with the '6'? I'm sure it is obvious but not to me!
Thanks again
Neil
