'85 Mercury 75Hp Speedometer Hookup

Recommended Posts

I bought a Skeeter boat off of a friend but it had motor issues. I think that I have them fixed but the gauges aren't working. I traced the speedometer tubing to the outboard. It ran down the frame of the outboard to the lower unit. I found a kink with a crack in the hose right before it enters the lower unit. The problem that I have is I cannot see a nipple to attach a new hose to. Does this mean that I must drop the lower unit? Can I splice into what hose is left? My manual that I downloaded off of the web doesn't mention anything about a speedometer pickup anywhere in the lower unit. Any help is much appreciated.

If you can't find the motor connection, you can buy a pitot assembly and mount it to the transom

I was hoping to not have to put anything else on the transom and keep the original. I just need to know where to get to the hookup.
