I have a 1994 johnson 175hp faststrike.

recently the rpm gauge dial has been spinning backwards on me. when this happens my trim gets slow, or hesitates. one person told me this is either a bad stator or rectifier causing the motor to run from dc to ac. does this sound right. I was also to told the rpm gauge might be going bad.

Hello I would check stator resistance and if OK replace regulator rectifier. also verify voltage when tach goes out.
