97 sltx fuel level sensor removal
What is the trick to removing the fuel level sensor? It will not seem to come out of the tank while it is in the ski. So that brings me to my next question. How do you remove the fuel tank? How is it attached to the hull? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Have you looked in the Service Manual?
There are also Parts Manuals with exploded assembly diagrams.
There have been other threads discussing removing fuel tanks, and changing the fuel sender.
I have not worked on an SLT hull, but I suspect you need to remove the tank mounting bolts, disconnect the hoses, and shift the tank to get better access to the tank top.

It is not an easy or fun thing to do. Remove the four mounting bolts...need a loooooong socket extension. With the bolts removed, slide the tank forward as far as possible and try to lift out the fuel sender and work it through the air vent hole in the deck. It takes some wiggling to get it out and through. Some people I've been told have been able to pull the tank out completely through the front storage bucket hole but I have never been able to do it. Good luck!

iv been able to unbolt the tank slide it foward from there you just need to take the sender out with 6 or 8 screws ,
unsnapped the bottom of your sender with a tiny nut , stick the sender float in and wala
