Title: SX 2 update-Electricals
Post by: senojn on July 08, 2021, 04:59:04 PM
Decided to connect the American instruments I purchased years ago but did not know how to proceed with wiring .
Recently found out that OMC motors have a three pin socket at the controls with a rev sender wire.
Bought two second hand looms (twin motors ) and an additional tach and gps speedometer .
Have successfully connected everything including new nav light wiring and a cluster of switches/accessories .
All these into the dash i built some years ago ? 3/4 inch maple with removable top and front radio panel .
Benefit of two motors is that I could plug both tachos into same motor and got identical readings .
Pics of the result .

G'day Neil,
You have done some great work!
As soon as this current glitch (corona) is out of the way, you'll be out enjoying the Georges River, just like the good old days!

Love your work, old mate.

MERCMAN.
