So, you may have answered this with the t-stat housing, but if it does intact go higher than 160, given new everything, what should I now be looking at? Do you mean a thermostat problem?

If the t-stat was bad you helm gauge would be reading high as well, is it?

One thing at a time get a handheld IR sensor and get some reading before guessing

Took boat out this morning and ran really well. Only issue, happened only once, boat at idle began to sputter a bit and died. Restarted without issue. After it shutoff, there was an alarm going off. Once started, it went off and didn't happen again. Got back to dock and restarted a few times, put into neutral and idled fine.

I was told once what that sound Afghanm alarm was but have forgotten.

Probably low oil pressure warning as ignition was on but no oil pressure once it died.

Had a friend tell me that the alarm sound could be the neutral switch on the throttle linkage, maybe grounding out?. Could have slipped out of adjustment?

Neutral safety switch, safety lanyard, nor shift interrupt have anything to do with the alarm nor is there wiring close to short out.

Alarm is either low gear lube, low oil pressure, or hot engine.
