Title: drain the tank- but did somethings stupid instead
Post by: Ratherberiding on October 21, 2018, 04:07:42 pm
rather than add stabilize and fulling the tank I was a dumb a** and put a 3/8 length if gas line into the right side and have buggered up the full gauge :-[....Have I bent something that can be straightened once removed or is this easier as a component replacement?  >:(

drain the tank (remove it after siphoning as much as possible out) and dump the rest into a big funnel and gascan from the filler hole...
Invert the tank, and remove the gage sending unit, it may have gotten wedged when you hit it with the hose, or arm got bent, but the arm is a simple piece of stiff wire, with a float on the end, like a toilet valve float.. and easily bent "back".
As to a 'measurement' for re-bending, I can't say, maybe look at photo's, or the FSM, for a picture of "approximatly how it looks 'new' and un bent.

best of luck
