    Fuel Level Sender repair, aluminum tube style, made easy

    If you have a aluminum tube fuel sender like my 95 slt 750 and the fuel gauge quits working, there are a couple possibilities on the fix. This may be old info for some of you, but I just figured this out.

    If the gauge is reading empty and the light is flashing, more than likely its the float inside the tube is bad, easy to change.

    If your gauge just doesn't work at all, no bars, no red light, its more than likely the 1/3 amp fuse inside the sender is bad. I cut my old one apart to see how it ticks and found the fuse bad.

    You can get the fuse from radio shack and just solder it on the outside of the circuit board instead of spending over $100 for new
