Why not just put a mechanical trim gauge in? More accurate, no wires, no ohms.

I’m 90% that Beede was doing the Eliminator gauges back then.


@zx14 where is your boat stored?
I put the silver carbon Carlotta in my boat a few months ago and being nothing is carbon makes me really want something else. How’s that white one to keep clean etc? Keep thinking to just order one and see how it looks but it’s rough at 500$ a wheel. Any better pics with that wheel visible?
Hi 02HoWaRd26,

I really like the silver carbon Carlotta wheel. To me, even though it has carbon texture, the silver is neutral and would look nice with any color combo just as zx14 white wheel.

I have been thinking about getting one, I have my eye on both the silver and the white, coin toss I guess.

I’m just trying to get this gauge thing resolved first, then comes the wheel!

2X on a mechanical trim gauge -- I hate electric trim gauges -- never accurate enough, usually too slow reacting, generally not reliable.

Yup, this is precisely my point!

When the gauge & sender ohms don’t match this is exactly what happens. Then people blame the electric trim gauge & call them junk!

Maybe i should call up CP and get a white one coming. Then when i decide which one i want I’ll make your decision easier 🤣🤣

Lol… Quite the mismatch you got going on there zx14. Reflection, or is there a couple with cracked lenses?

Hey, that Faria gauge doesn’t look half bad in there… Lol, but at least it works!!!

Instead of the Faria, why didn’t you just get another Eliminator trim gauge?

Did you ever find out who makes the Eliminator gauges? Be interesting to know this because they have the correct ohm value for the Merc sender.

Oh and I love your Isotta steering wheel, that’s another thing on my list!
Well, the mismatch continues, and my OCD is driving me nuts. I do really like the autometer GPS speedo, with the different information available , did you know it’s 9.6 miles from Windsor north to Sara’s crack?.
I think I’m going with Livorsi for all the rest, and just deal with it.
Autometer can’t tell me if all my senders will work with there gauges, but livorsi said yes,(but we know trim gauges don’t)

So, you went ahead and gave those dicks more money!! SHIIIIIIIIT! Lol

I must say though, they look damn good in there!

Did you have to buy anything extra to go with the new GPS speedo to make it work?
