    Submersible Fuel Line Must Be Woven With Gold

    Replacing the fuel lines inside the tank on my 1994 SL-750. I couldn't find submersible fuel line for less than $20 a foot, and the only options are one foot at a time, or a roll of 32ft. Anyone have a better option?

    You could get the drop tube style pickup from the newer model skis. The one from a 95 SL 750 should fit. Polyethylene should work as well.

    Tygon tubing should work as well. I used that for fuel lines, including those in the tank for a gas powered RC boat I have.

    Personally, I called around and was pointed to ask a local repair shop and he told where I could get it in town. Maybe you could call repair shops and ask? Couldn't hurt.

    This is a good option. The later models used an aluminum one-piece unit that acts as both fuel pickup and level sender.

    These were made in several lengths to fit different model fuel tanks. As long as the sender is from a model with the same fuel tank height (internally) the sender should fit in and work.

    Used senders are probably not expensive. No more worries about rotting fuel hose inside the fuel tank.

    It is an option but does involve swapping the fuel tank as my old setup uses the aluminum threaded collar to hold the pickup to the tank and the newer style is held to the tank by 5-6 screws. I have a newer pickup and tank, just didn't want to go through the additional work. I'd even have to get into the E-box, (I don't cut and splice) which is not the end of the world, again, I just didn't want to do it right now.

    Instead of doing a cut and splice, install a 2 pin weather pack connector set in the line. Makes everything so much easier when you need to get something out. I have done that on just about all of my skis where there were no connectors. I can then just pull plugs to get the electric box out.
