Anyways... per Mainsail's inspiration to us all the volt, fuel, and temp gauges are going to be replaced on the universal 5416 engine panel.

Folks can also check out the Faria Euro gauges at Defender... I got sick of trying to find stock on Teleflex gauges, company sold off gauges blah, blah, blah, so switched to the Faria Euro......

Defender.com Search Results: Faria: Euro

Re: Amega gauge

MS! I keep looking at the arctic white gauges. Like them allot.

I have a new red #8 wire ready to feed the panel.. the trailer plug is stll good but will be removed...

Uh.. no, I won't be using fender washers on the new gauges LOL

Lessee... red = pos. (yellow in newer boats?) black = neg, oil and water senders one wire each? fuel should be a no brainer. Key switch replaced last year.. should be ok as is. glow plugs. someone ran new red before me.

Red is still positive. Yellow is in the newer ABYC standards for negative as a replacement for black in order to avoid confusion with shore power AC (white and black).

Re: Amega gauge

Denise, the Seaward wiring harness upgrade topic has all the wire colors noted
Engine Harness Upgrade - C34

I don't know the color for the frimrap sky hook connector, though!

Re: Amega gauge

Hey D!

Pleez loose:
  • the wire nuts - keep them out of the bilge too
  • the ammeter
  • the trailer plugS (there were two of 'em)
  • the fender washers

Here is a wiring diagram of what I did on my boat. You could use this as a template for yours;
