Mainship Pilot 34 Engine gauges to NMEA 2000

I have recently completed a project replacing the analog gauges on my twin engine 2007 Mainship Pilot 34 and converting to NMEA 2000 digital gauges. I have written this up in some detail with lots of pictures in the attached PDF. Here is a picture of the finished product.

That looks really good. Thanks for posting.


I'm having some issues with one of my tachs as well. How did you find/fix the loose ground pin?

Because the issue was affecting both tachs, I figured that it must be on the ground side since that is the only thing the 2 tachs have in common. I then just played with the ground connections until I found the problem connection. When I tightened the connection the entire post turned. I had to play with it to get it "just right".
