    Fuel gauge running incorrectly.

    Why is my fuel gauge not reading correctly? I tracked it back and it's a metal stick with nothin on it?

    There is a plastic cap with a small nut on the bottom of it. Take the nut off and remove the plastic cap. The float is inside there. most likely it doesnt float anymore and needs to be replaced.

    That year had both styles, the older style with the plastic float and the aluminum pickup tube with sender unit in it. What style do you have? When you say metal stick, do you mean a long aluminum tube like mentioned above, or the older style with the metal rod with a loop on the end? If it's the metal rod, you're missing the plastic float ball. If it's the aluminum tube, it's as mentioned above.

    It's like a metal rod very skinny and not even an inch wide. It has a 6 bolts to unscrew to get to it.

    If you have the newer style, there is only that in the top of the tank and it's held on by the six screws. If you have the older style, there will be a threaded ring that holds the pickup tubes in and the sender unit is held in by six screws elsewhere in the top of the tank.

    That thing barely fitys through the sender hole. If it came out of it's perch, your going to have to remove the fuel, fuel tank and shake the float out through the filler neck.

    I was actually able to fish one out. Fill the tank so the fuel is about 2 or 3 inches below the sender hole. I then kept wiggling the ski until I could see the float through the sender hole. I was able to fish it out with a u shaped piece of wire. Took a few tries to get it.
