Boat Repair Questions? Ask a Marine Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am purchasing the motor with Smartcraft gauges.As mentioned earlier I saw the gauge pod in a Mercury brochure and it had the speedo and tacho mounted in it along with other gauges.
Ok I know the one. Let me see if I can find the part number on-line. If not I can get tomorrow while I am at my day job. I will reply back soon.
What gauges are you getting?
Smartcraft at the moment is all I can say as the dealer has closed for the day.
Charles, Were you looking at something like this? It has the gauges already in it.
Look down to the helm panels. Is this what you are looking at?
I am unable to see your picture of the item you are trying to show.
The gauges being supplied are Smartcraft 1000 but i have the option of upgrading if needed.
The intention is that if we can find a stand alone pod, then the dash would not be cut at all apart from a small hole for wiring looms.
This would be mounted on top of the dash , not flush mounted using bezels
I will be using s fish finderin the boat. At www.mercurymarine.com.au/home/parts-accessories/gauges-controls.aspx there is a set up about the same size as the pod.
The pod would allow to my instrument pod on top of the dash and behind the windscreen the the restored dash intact.
The gauge set up is the centre unit. this is the closet to what I saw on the web.
I will use link gauges but the final gauge package is still to be determined by myself and the dealer.At this it is the SC1000 gauge package we are discussing.
On reading your reponse again I am not sure what you mean when you say"mounted gauge set-up would look like" What does a mounted gauge set up look like? It sounds very promising.
The engine management system to be used is a PCM07 UNIT.
I have never received any pics. Can you send them in PDF format.
The gauge set up in the centre of the web site is very close to what I saw but the bottom was flat to sit on top of the dash.
This is one of them. Click on the link. If it does not work copy and paste into your browser.http://www.shopping.com/scanstrut-scanstrut-scanpod-deck-pod-deep-uncut/info
This is the other.
The scanstrut is close but without the base and a more streamlined appearance like car bonnet gauge holder.
I agree, they are cool and have two on my car. However while looking around on my own I have come across a Teleflex Signature Series Instrument set that apart from the dip in the middle is exactly what I am looking for. It appears to be free standing and it has 5 holes for instruments.Unfortunately it does not give the physical dimensions of the unit to allow me to measure up the area behind the windscreen.
This would be their equivalent of the Mercury housing that I saw on the Mercury web site . now you have a very good indication on what I am looking for.
The Mercury unit I saw would have the holes the size of Smartcraft gauges and I am sure how many holes are in the Mercury unit.
No it is not brochure that I saw on the web site.
The pod was past that as the very last item in the brochure just after page 16
All I can say is THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS.
Your service has been first class and I am very satisfied.
