I am also very interested in the diagrams, especially the wiring between the instrument and the sensor.

Best regards,

Adjo,

I believe I do..I will check this weekend. I am missing 1 x bezel cover...so if you could use the instrument without the bezel..that is use an old one?...then I will part with it. If not I will supply with clear bezel. PM me with your expectation for price...I am not out to gouge or rip any one off at all just need to establish fair price.

Monty

Re: 1980s VDO Wind Indicator System -Replacement Masthead Unit

I had one which worked fine--it was fitted in the nineties--but a lightning discharge on a nearby vessel fried the masthead unit with induced current. To replace the masthead unit was more expensive than an entire new system with gauges and a new depth sounder--not VDO but a quality make.

VDO have spares--but they are very expensive (and still unscreened)

Hi,
for the moment I've only been able to find some installation instructions...no luck with a replacement unit or schematics...
If you find something - share it

Re: 1980s VDO Wind Indicator System -Replacement Masthead Unit

My mast was recently taken off and the guys in the yard did not make a note of the wiring for the wind unit. Does anyone have a note of how the wiring should be? I have 9 wires on the mast and 8 in use on the cable going to the display. Spent two days trying to get it sorted out and still no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated in a manual for these 1980's units or your own notes.
Please PM me with anything of use.

Thanks
Ewen
