GREAT DAY on the water yesterday!!

Finally got our 1970 Evinrude Sportsman 155 our on the water after two years of restoring, cleaning, polishing and getting it ready. Spent the afternoon cruising Lake Oroville from Lime Saddle down to the dam past Bidwell Marina and up the east fork of the lake. HAD A GREAT TIME!!

This was our first time taking her out on the lake and she purred like a kitten. Smooth as silk.....SOOOO MUCH FUN!!

I do have a question for other vintage Evinrude owners. I don't have gauges for Oil Pressure and Engine Temp, just idiot lights. I'm not very comfortable with relying on idiot lights and would prefer actual gauges. I shouldn't think it would be all that difficult. Has anyone here done it? Suggestions? Ideas?

You can do gauges. Faria sells everything you need. You must get the senders that match the gauges.
