    Default Water Pressure Gauge

    Have a 2006 150 V max Carb.

    I was dumb enough to fish last saturday when it was 10 degrees.

    My press gauge did not work at all saturday.

    Now the press gauge runs 6psi higher than normal. When i pull the key it will not go to zero. Its stops at 6.

    Did water in there freeze and mess it up ? What's the solution

    I would be willing to bet unless you store it inside it is still frozen dont think it has been above freezing long enough to thaw out. Might want to try pulling the hose off the back and see if any water is coming through.

    Might have froze up and ruinned the gauge, had it happen on my Stratos about a month before I got rid of it.

    Jeremy, if it were still frozen I don't think it would register any pressure, it would jsut remain at 6 lbs. Derek, I've heard of some H2O gauges being able to be calibrated, but I'm not educated beyond just hearing that some can be fixed. I don't know which make/models can be, or even 100% sure that statement is accurate. If you don't an answer hear shoot Wayne or Nathan Worthy an email at Hydrotec Marine, www.hydrotecmarine.com.

    Btw, that link is if your gauge is part of a Yamaha gauge package. If it is a Stratos part I'd check with them instead.

    Yep and replace it. Happens every winter. You can unhook the hose and let it drain out on the carpet or install a compression fitting T and open the T valve and let the H20 drain.
