    Does anyone have Info on how to access the fuel tank return fittings on a 1987 55' Ocean Super Sport. I have no room to get to them from the engine compartment.
    Any help would greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hole saw above it.
    You sure you need to go to the return fittings?

    Yes, the return line for one of the gen sets is bad. Do you mean that there is a access there already? the tank that I need to get to is the Port side and one section of the L shape sofa in the salon would be where the tank is below, is that where you say the access is?.

    There may already be an access plate (plywood deck plate) available under the sofa. You may end up unloading your stored stuff, imagine your from NJ and look for a removable piece of deck.
    Many a time I have had to resort to the hole saw and cover it with a plastic deck plate (Beckson) when finished.
    There are some serious Ocean Kids here at YF and their probably with their families today. Give them a few days to confirm my thoughts.
