    Beerdart,

    I think I can handle tha. However, few questions.

    1. Is this the float in the picture? Or does the float come with this kit from Randy?

    2. Does anyone have any pictures or instructions of the install. I havent ever take out the sending unit before and I am a little worried that once I get it out, it will never seal right again. Any suggestions on how to properly seal the tank once the float is replaced?

    Thanks guys!

    Remove the sender six? bolts and remove it has a gasket. Then remove the nut on the bottom and remove the cover and the float falls out.

    Sweet! What about replacing the gasket? does one come with the kit or can I substitute the gasket for a silicon type material.

    No need to replace the gasket unless it leaks, I don't think I've ever replaced one yet.
    Worst case scenario you might have to loosen the tank and bring it forward so you can pull the sender out.
    IF your wires run all the way into the electrical box, just cut the wires near the sender unit and install a weather pack connector.

    i have a very nice, low hr 96 SL780 here, we started parting last fall. i think it should still have the sender in it if you do need the complete assy.

    let me know if i can help at all. ( please send me an email).

    thanks. zig

    my bad, this was a 96 SLX 780. probably the same sender though. i KNOW i have a good SL750 one too.

    Thanks guys for the help. I will pull the sender as soon as I get the chance and do the float in the gas test. Hopefully all I have to order is the float from Randy.

    Anyone know if he gives discounts to GH members?

    Thanks again!
