    The sender unit is on top of the port tank just behind the engine room wall in the cockpit. It is leaking pretty bad when we fill the tank. I can't quite see it. Does anybody know if it is shallow enough to be lifted out the top to be fixed. It has three screws and I'm guessing an o-ring seal. The gauge still works fine. The vent hose to the cockpit is clear so I don't think I blew it up on an overfill. That hose used to overflow fine. Anybody change one?

    Could also be the fill line /pipe going into the tank that’s leaking.
    That’s was leaking along with the sender on my Ocean Yachts tank.

    lucky my tank is easy to get to.
    Sorry I can not help you on how to get to yours.
    You are a pretty sharp guy, I’ve read your Post…posts. Lol
    And I’m sure you will find a way to get it done. Sure would be nice to here from someone who’s tackled this already.

    Three screws? Usually 5.

    Hey, Davidoc, if you meant to post something in your post #3, you'll have to try it again. Make sure you're not using white text color.:D

    My gauge has never worked and I did not know where the sender was so thanks for that :)

    Thanks. No trace of leak while filling. Only when just full
    One of the guys know about this. They'll post something next week. Thanks
