Hello all fellow boaters,
Was hoping to get some recommendations on installing a temperature gauge on my 2002 Suzuki DF140. Basically Iíve got my factory warning light and beeping sound available but would like to get a gauge so I can have a visual of the temperature as it fluctuates. The reason that I would like to do this is that Iíve found that during long runs (in the Texas Coast) sea grass tends to get sucked into the intake ports of the lower unit and causing it to block and reduce the normal water (flow) intake to keep it cool. Of course I thought it might be the thermostat but after looking at the lower unit I found a good amount of sea grass stuck in the intake ports. Suggestions on what brand and type of gauge would be appreciated. Also, Do I need to drill a hole in the block for this or can I just integrate the gauge into the existing temp sensor?
Thanks in advance, Eddie
