I have a '70 Johnson Seasport II, which I think is the same boat, with a different name. I too considered changing the switch panel and guages using a brushed aluminum for both panes. That way I could use modern equipment, but keep the same style. Ron Mathewson ________________________________ From: "omc-boats-request@..." <omc-boats-request@...> To: omc-boats@...

Message-ID: <> Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Hello, ? I'm restoring a '70 Envinrude 16' Explorer 150 and need to replace all three of the instrumentation pods; speedometer, tach, combined fuel/volt meter.? The openings in the aluminum faceplate?that holds each instrument is 3.25".? It seems all current market items require 4" holes. ? Questions: 1) Is there a source for 3.25" like gauges? 2)?Has someone successfully widened the holes to 4" to accommodate current gauges that are out there on the market (Teleflex, Faria, etc)?? (successfully as in still able to gett he instrument into the hole inspite of the overhang lip). 3) Any other suggestions? ? I thought about dispensing partially or entirely the aluminum faceplace and replace it with wood like teak or the like.? Anyone done that? ? Thanks. ? -Bill Dallas, TX. -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
