    fuel gauge

    I put a new battery in my sl700 and the fuel gauge shows full and the tank looks to have about 1/2 in there ..... is there a way to test the gauge to see if it works or when does it work? Does it have to be running? I have to do a top end rebuild so it dont run right now?

    Check for shorts, corrosion or other problems with the wiring between display and fuel tank sender.

    If you connect an ohm-meter to the fuel tank sender pins (unplug the connector to the display), you should measure ohms that roughly correspond to the fuel level. 33 ohms is a full tank. 240 ohms is an empty tank. Half full tank should measure somewhere in the 100-150 ohm range I would guess.

    Tip: Always helpful to mention which model and year PWC you are asking about

    ooops the bolt that the JUG sits on...I got it out....is there a good way to put a new one in without splitting the cases?

    One of the studs that holds the jug to the block? If you got it out, you should be able to thread a new one back in if the jug is off.
