    fuel logged "float" ie sinker

    greetings,

    I have a 96 SL700 that I have been working on for the last few months. I was wondering if the sl700 has a "limp mode" if the float is fuel logged and sinks to the bottom showing a empty reading on the gauge. I removed the float and placed it in a galss of fuel and it sunk to the bottom. for a temp fix I placed a section of fuel hose inside the aluminum fuel pickup/sender to hold the float up to the "full" position.

    From the wiring diagram, it appears that the CDI does not contain a limiter function tied to an LR module. It appears that your low oil and low fuel are tied to a simple buzzer that kicks on when empty.

    Perhaps someone who has worked on your ski can clarify or correct me.....
