Finishing engine swap in 1997 SN196, looking for ZO Head unit 3.5"

SkiKolbSkiKolb Posts: 121 Baller
Well it been just over a year, but I have sucessfully, sold the GT40, and installed PCM 343CAT engine. Now I am trying to find the final pieces to install ZO. I have found a few 5" ZO display units , but I don't necessarily want to cut the dash up for that. I am hoping to find a gently used or new 3.5" ZO head unit for a reasonably price. Please let me know if anyone knows of anything available? I may have this boat for sale soon. It has a new Bimini cover, PTM mirror, new steering cable, and the new engine.

    @Thager has a brilliant idea for how and where to mount the ZO display you have.

    if mounted at angle in cup holder, will need ZO head unit for angle mount functionality; accelerometers oriented properly.

    Ok, so basically mount it like the boat is a 200 with the round 5" display?

    Eric, Yes if you have access to a SN 200 5" head unit and mount it in the '97 driver cupholder with the same angle of orientation as in a 200 (with this type of display) it should function fine.

    as Brian stated, I think @thager has some photos of his install

    He has posted pics of it on BOS before. Slick and almost looks factory installed. I think in materials it's like $5 bucks to do it if that. I sent him a message to repost pics so hopefully up soon.

    Would it fit in a speedometer hole on the dash?

    My 97 SN take a 3.5in speedometer. But the 5" ZO are more available, it seem like

    I think ZO have only ever been 5", I've never seen a smaller one.

    @Rockdog, they make a 3.5" kit

    3.5 ZO

    The only 3.5" units I could find in 2010 said DisasterRaft on them so I went with the 5".
    Stir vigorously then leave!
