Electro Marine Wind/Knot

My ole tub came with some windage insrtumentation.... and I happened to get ahold of the orig. docs that came with them as well as some of the charts from the original owner, who appears to be an able seaman. The problem is that the PO, between me and the original, had thoughts of re-doing everything...well he managed to tear it up before realizing he couldnt put it back together.

egads can i babble. anyway, is it possible for me to check the integrity/accuracy of these gauges w/o totally hooking them up? i mean even if they are willing to take any juice, let alone read anything.... just hate to hook it all up to do it again....
the po just cut all the wires...






thanks gang

Just match colors, and twist them together and see what works. Go from there.
Edit''''''''Couldn't see the pic's last time.
Well you know that each guage needs power and ground for a lighting circuit, and possible power/ground for the unit itself. After that, there isn't much left. I'd sure try it before replacing them, unless the other side is fogged so badly that you can't see whats happening. I do know that whatever you buy.......is not going to be cheap. Just this morning, I repaired my 36 year old Swoffer KnotMeter for my boat, still works just fine.
Best of luck
