I have a 1997 Cobia - Volvo 4.3 I/O - The trim operates fine but I am not getting a proper reading on my Dash Gauge indicating the proper trim. I checked the Trim fluid level while outdrive was in up position as indocated in user manual. Is my Gauge going bad? Is their a sending unit that is going bad?
I also have the same problem with my Fuel Gauge not providing the proper fule tank level. Is this possible the Tank Sending Unit is bad or the Fuel Gauge?

Thank You

Hello Greenwood, in both cases it is most likely the sending unit.

Mike,

Thank you very much for your reply. Would that Sending Unit be mounted where the Pump is located? Mounted on Back Of Hull which has an opening for adding fluid? Can I just purchase the Sending Unit seperate?

Hello Frank, what model 4.3 do you have? Is it a GL, GI or GS?
