Also still womdering about the constant 12V wiring needed for the GPS speedometer.

Thanks!
Ordered the new sending unit through Mary today. Mine was $73 plus shipping TBD. Will take a couple of weeks to get at this point, so I'll just need to watch my tank for now

Very nice work. Where did you locate the factory MC wiring information such as the tach, temp, volt etc. wires.?? Did you find a wiring diagram somewhere?
I want to first try and re-vitalize my existing set up. I really like your gauge set though. Simple to trouble shoot!!

Those signal wires are listed early in this tutorial (first page with pictures shown) and matched with my boat too. Just take your time and it goes pretty well overall.

Sending unit showed up yesterday (much earlier than expected), but was a blizzard here! Maybe next week will get better

First of all thank you for the write up! I just did the Faria 6 gauge MDC delete on my 1999 Sportstar. I still need another speedometer if anyone is not using the on that came with the set. My instrument cluster had 2. I have hooked everything up and all the gauges seem to work as expected. Now I finally know the temperature of the engine.

I'll see if I can add any value to this thread.
I went with Faria gauges that came with the GPS speedo. The GPS speedo requires a constant 12v and a switched 12v. Coming out of the MMDC 24 pin connector, there is a red and a red with black stripe. The red is switched and the the red with black stripe is where I picked up the constant 12v. I picked up the grey wire for the tach off of the PerfectPass. There was enough wire stuffed behind the kick panel that I was able to pull it through and tap in to the wire. I did have to install an new temp sending unit and run a dedicated wire, the analog gauges will not work with the two wire sending unit found on our motors.

Only thing left for me is a new fuel sending unit and then it will be complete.
Would you have any idea what tempt sending unit you went with?

Iím working on an Ď02 X-Star right now.

Used this on my 02 Sierra International TS26631 240 Degree Marine Temperature Sender https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001HBUR86..._eyD6CbD3TMYA5

Excellent. Thank you.

Did you run into issues with the swap other than what is been noted in this thread?

Nope.

If you assume you are running new senders for every gauge, you shouldnít run into problems. I used the open water jacket port opposite the factory sender for the new Sierra unit.

I thought Iíd add a little something. I have a 2003 Maristar with a bad fuel gauge that Iíve been putting off dealing with for quite some time. The other day I was doing some work on my heater and I took the kick panel out by the drivers feet. Once thatís out, you can slide your body way further into the boat and sit up higher. You can see the back of all the gauges and all the little wing nuts you need to take off to get the dash panel out. Itís way better than feeling around blind for everything. I was able to reach right in and replace my fuel gauge without having to pull the panel out. Hopefully this helps someone.
