tilt & trim wiring adapter

Hi,
I have a 2003 Alumacraft 175 tournament sport. I repowered this spring from a 115 Johnson to a 150 HO etec. I replaced the tach and rewired the dash. Every thing is working great. I went from 32 mph wot to 46mph@ 5200 rpm. Here is my challenge. On the tournament sport there is a remote switch for the trim in the front of the boat. I would like to tie it into the wiring but would rather not use crimp connectors. Is there a splitter that can be put between the Cowell switch and the wiring harness so I can plug the wires in. Thanks

Here are the different kits available for adapting to a bow mounted trim switch. Be advised that the bow switches installed by the boat manufacturer are often problematic due to there location and exposure to rain and splashed water. Make sure it is a quality water proof switch.

 

To provide electrical connections to “tap into” the trim harness
with a second trim switch (i.e. bow mounted trim). 
176534 "Y" Connector Only - 6"
176588 "Y" Connector with 13' Cable no Switch
176560 "Y" Connector with 13' Cable and Remote Trim Switch
