M. Engine Hour Meter
Figure E21: 214 CFS Head
Engine hour meters are optional on most models and
provide a numeric record of elapsed engine operating
time. This information is important in determining sched-

should be protected from the weather when not in use.

contact cleaner. Be sure to read the label be-

N. Alarm Systems
Electronic gauges are affected by static electricity that
builds-up on the glass face. Periodic washing of the
gauge face with warm water and mild liquid detergent
will help eliminate the static electricity problem and im-
prove gauge accuracy.
The Four Winns®/VDO instrument module (standard
on the 234 and 254 Candia FS models) has an audio
and/or visual warning system for oil pressure, water
temperature, low fuel, and voltage. It is actuated by
various engine sensors.
O. Instrument Maintenance
Electrical protection for instruments and ignition circuitry
is provided by fuses. The fuse block for the 234/254 is
located inside the starboard storage compartment. In
the case of the 214 CFS, the fuse block is located in-
side the starboard head, underneath the velcro fuse
block cover. See Figure E21.
