    Cool 1986 Winner Tournament???

    Hello fellow Winner owners. My name is Justin and my dad has purchased a 1986 Winner Tournament with a Johnson 150. It in kinda rough shape but will still get up and go fishing. Problem is we are missing one of the gauges on the dash and would like to know which ones were originally used. Pics of the dash would be nice but we currently have the following gauges: Tach, speedo,Temp,Trim and fuel.

    Thanks in advance,
    Justin

    This from when i redid the old panel on dash. The large hole would be for a Lowrance flasher and the other for a tilt wheel i added. Hope this helps. i don't have a temp gauge as the Mercury gurus told me i didn't need one. it has a warning buzzer for that. also, i have seen many Tournaments since there was a Winner dealer near me in the 80's and early 90's. there was a wide variation of how the dashes were laid out from year to year. yours may not be even remotely like this one.

    Sweet. I wasn't sure on whether it was missing the Volt or water psi but it sounds like it could be users choice. If anything may have enough room to add both. Thanks for the info.

    Welcome!!!

    IMO PSI before volts. You need to make sure the engine does not drop in water pressure to much in the turns. A Volt meter is important too but the PSI is something I always pay attention to while running.
