Hi fellow Uniflite Owners, Any tips on changing out the Gauges? the previous owner changed out the engines. No I have no hour meeter and am thinking of changing the Tach or learning what wire to reconnect.
I have a 1984 42 SE II (DCMY). I asked Teleflex about my tachs and was told that they were not driven by the alternators. Teleflex was wrong! So as of now I haven't changed anything. I guess one of the answers depends on what drives your tachs. I have 8.2L Detroit Diesels, but the wiring diagram indicates that my boat could have had Caterpillars. The drawing shows a tach drive that come from an engine-mounted sender. Maybe that was with the Caterpillars.
Hour meters are wired into the ignitions wiring some how. In the case of a diesel, they must be connected to some power that is ON when the engine is running. I replaced the one on my genset, but I didn't have to invent anything there.
