I have a 93 Javelin 389 boat that I just picked up to put my 96 150HP Evinrude on and all the guages have broken needles and I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction in getting some new gauges for it. Will any guage work or does it have to be specific for each model boat? I'm new to boating and I am learning as I go. I am trying to get this project finally complete but I dont want to buy the wrong thing online when all I had to do was ask for a little help in the right direction. Thanks in advance.
Your 1996 motor will need the System Check tach with the 4-warning lights or a separate SystemCheck gauge.
See an Evinrude dealer to look at the different styles of gauges that are available. There are aftermarket gauge companies also.
