Finally getting to those pesky dash gauges....has anyone (probably an understatement) replaced the engine gauge module or know where I can get replacements?  I've seen a few pictures of very nice refits with new but holding out for original replacements.

They do a bang up job, they did the gauges on my Connie.

But before you jump the gun, I think we have the same gauges on the 47 as on the 45, and so far every problem I've had with a 'gauge' has in the end turned out to be a sending unit or a ground problem in the wiring. The actual gauges seem to be pretty reliable. Even the jumping tach was caused by old sticky cables going to the glendenning, not the actual tach. If it's cosmetics, that's another story, but I don't have a flybridge so all my gauges are in good shape.
Kocian rebuilt the gauges on my 1979 45' Commander several years ago and I am very pleased with their work. I do have the flybridge as well. I also agree that the sending units are a more probable cause of many of the problems. I bought new ones from Detroit Diesel.

Kocian sold his business a while back.  I would recommend Williamson's Instruments.  He's the only gauge guy that was able to tackle my trim tab ("Cruise Control") pod after sending it to 3 other places including Kocian.

Thank you all for the great information!  We were out of town so it has taken a while to get back to boat life.

I think I will start with the sending units and work back to the gauges and grounds as well as clean the contacts for each gauge where they plug into the module.  I can make the gauges jump simply by touching the master plugs at the modules so I'm hoping the module is not the problem but rather the plug contacts.

Thanks again and I'll let you all know my progress.

Do you have a Total Command gauge system or individual gauges?
