    USA Water Pressure Gauge stuck on 30???

    I have a 1996 Stratos 288 with a Johnson 150 Fast Strike. It's a great setup but my Water Pressure gauge was stuck on 30 psi when i bought it. I looked at the back of the gauge and the electrical connections are good. The engine discharges water as it should and runs great.

    Should i just order a new gauge or am i missing something else?

    Thanks!

    Order a new one. It likely froze up.

    Only electrical on a water pressure gauge is for the back light. If you have a Teleflex gauge just get the complete kit. If it is a Faria, they have a lifetime warranty.

    You can send me a picture of the gauge. If I have one like it, I will send you a price. If it is a Faria and you want to send it in to them, I will get their contact info to you.
