I've never understood why so many small diesels are sold without oil pressure or temperature gauges. By the time your overheat alarm goes off your engine is already overheated.

I would not leave the dock without a raw water alarm which will sound off the instant raw water ceases to flow..... long before the engine overheats.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

A kit like this is probably the easiest way to go.
