I've got a 98' 175 with a 90spl Evinrude. I'm planning a rewrite and would like to replace my gauges while I'm at it. From what I understand I need to be careful on what tach I decide. Can anyone recommend a tach or what I need to look for?

Depends on if you have a separate system check gauge or if you want a tach with the system check built into it

I'm looking to cost out replacement guages for what I currently have. My current tach doesn't appear to have the system check built in. I attached a pic of my console below (I think)

Check with Marine Connection Liquidators in Ft Pierce. you can probably get a full set of NOS gauges for under $100.

I'm really surprised you don't have the system check with the four red indicator warning lights and alarm. Does your boat beep when you first turn on the key?

Thank you, I sent them an email asking about the gauges/panel.

My boat does beep when I first turn the key. It also beeps if in gear when I got to start.

Since you are in Venice, look at Marine Surplus in Sarasota by the Airport. They have a lot of stuff pretty decent prices. And they are local to you. They don't have any Aquasport plates however.

Heard back for MCL, top notch service. I battered the poor guy with a bunch of quesitons, and he was patient and knowledgeable. He's got a panel to sell me ($135 for the panel and switches), and another $185 for the instrument cluster. I just need to verify some measurements.

Thanks all for the help!!!

Now I just need to message Bob on Facebook to work out the re-wire!!!!
