I replaced (6) of my gaffrig gauges in a 2001 Ultra 496HO with new ones. They were old and faded but they worked still. All came back up without an issue except the water temp. The temp is reading high, around 240, my rinda shows 170-180 as the old gauge did so I know I am good. The new gauge is a 0-280 where the new is 0-240. Does the sender need to be changed?

I think I found my own answer, there is a 0-240 and 0-280 sending unit gaffrig makes. I think it's just easier to order a new gauge and send the other one back.

Yeah its the sender. When I bought my boat it had the wrong sender, their website has a bunch of different senders.

If they will do a quick swap do that, but changing the sensor only takes a few minutes.
