gearing problem

OK, bit stuck.

So I've got a lifter/jack plate with 7 inches of travel and a mechanical pop up display with 5 inches of travel.

Any ideas on how this could be geared or resolved as otherwise the lifter will rip out the pop cable??

Cheers

If you get the right sender unit it will adapt for that.

Have a look at the Stainless Marine lifter and trim senders - they worked it out!
