02' Ultra 150 fuel gauge
I'm kind of new around here and this is my first post on the forum. I just bought a second hand 02' Ultra 150 and it seems like it has issues with the fuel gauge. I've been doing quite a lot of searching for the past few days on the internet on what may be the source of the problem and apparently it's due to a malfunctioning sending unit.
My concern here is that I absolutely have no experience whatsoever on how to get the sending unit out of the fuel tank and clean it.
If you guys could point me on how to get that thing out or a link to somewhere...a video would be very useful.
Thanks a lot guys !

its not hard take the two knee pads off the side of the hull an you will see three bolts on each side remove the main brace,then disconnect the fuel lines,electral connector an the bottom band clamb on the sender unit,pull straight up an she will come out.

Thanks for the answer ! I tried pulling it out for about an hour yesterday when I figured I had to take off the two knee pads. My question is ; Will I be able to put those knee pads back where they were because they seem kind of glued to the watercraft ? And how exactly am I suppose to take those off ? Do I just rip them off ?

when you take off the knee pads there are two metal retainers inside the hull that help hold them on clip them off you will not be able to reuse them, then peel off carefully an you can reuse the pads. to reuse the pads clean off excess glue on the hull an pad real good,then buy some gorrills glue an apply just enought to the pad an then apply 3m double sided tape to the pad then peel backing of tape an apply it to the hull,push firmly thats after the glue dries for a bit before u apply to the hull.

If someone had that kind of problem before could you help me on what would be my next step ? I'm thinking about buying a new sending unit but if I do and the issue is still the same, I'm screwed because those things are almost 250$..
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated !

Keep in mind that the fuel level circuit has a long time constant. It takes about 10 seconds for it to update.

I don't know if I should just completly change it or if there's something I didn't check.
Thanks for your help !

We're having almost the same exact problem with my buddies 01 Ultra 150, his gas gauge is barely ever accurate, so we just judge it off my STX's gauge.
I would imagine if it's not the float or the sender, than that would normally mean the gauge is faulty.

I am going through the same problem with both my 02 and 05 Ultra always show 1 bar low that's it. I have pulled them both cleaned them both up used each one in the other ski to check and make sure fuel gage is working properly. The problem lies with the level meter itself. The part number you are looking for on a 02 Ultra is 27010-3776 the cheapest i have found one is for $230 plus shipping. i have posts on this board and others looking for a used one but no luck.
