Panels and instruments are not universal. For example, Yanmar does not
have glow plugs and the tach works off the flywheel, not the alternator.
You could make a panel out of Starboard that holds the instruments and
switches you have, but to duplicate a Yanmar panel would be a major PIA.
I suspect the same would be true of the Universal panel.
