My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help with this.
It sounds like your sending unit is bad. This is located between the transom brackets on your mid section. It is what sends the signal to your gage to show the angle. You have to trim the motor up to see it. I am including a link that shows a parts breakdown of your swivel bracket. Copy and paste in your browser and look at part# XXXXX at the top of the picture.
