Default Mercruiser Engine Data/Mounting on Garmin 8212

I re-powered my Silverhawk with brand new GM 6.2L 377, 4bbl Edelbrock Carb. Standard OEM Mercruiser engine harness. Bought 2 Garmin 8212's. Replacing a couple of Garmin 5212s and GSD 22 with 18 HD Radar.

How can I get Speed, RPM, Fuel, Engine Tilt, Oil, Volts, Temp with this engine onto 8212? I found this but am unsure if this will work and looking at it - don't know how would/where it interface. If this is not correct, how can I get analog engine data into the MFD from small block mercruiser. Is there any known way to get fuel flow into MFD from carbureted engine?

2nd question, I want to flush mount the 2 new 8212's, but based on the curvature, I was originally going to mount via this http://www.boatoutfitters.com/helm-e...cs-storage-box but it doesn't look like it can fit when internal dimensions are built for external 8212 size on the curved upper top end of my silverhawk helm. Any other suggestions? I thought about bondo-ing in starboard an then gel coating but do not thing anything would stick well to starboard to get the clean, glossy OEM look I want. Anyone know where I could get a piece of 1/4 in to 1/2 in glossy, bright white finished/gelcoated fiberglass or comparable?

Any suggestions for either would be greatly appreciate

All I am aware of is devices that transfer analog engine data from GM motors that are fuel injected not carbureted.

Maybe someone with more knowledge can step in

Without an Ecu there is no data that can be converted to nmea.
International marine can build you a faceplate or panel.
