As long as you don't do long-duration acceleration while the level is low, you should be OK, but best practice is to go for gas before it reaches E.

Yes. Again, having almost no gas will keep it from running well because even two gallons will be very shallow over the area of the whole tank and since these have a small chamber in the middle, you...

You can rotate the arm so it's vertical and measure the length, then measure the depth from the plate to the bottom of the tank. I would leave a bit of room at the bottom when you set it to Empty, to...

Look into your tank for pieces of black or off-white plastic- the float fell off of your sender. The small washer on the rod is for setting the height and it's supposed to have another one on the...

Do you have a parts store that sells GM parts? Go there. It's not marine-specific. Take the old one with you.

The Bendix is supposed to be lubed annually and if it isn't, it freezes due to rust.

Since it's not engaging, don't try it before having this repaired- cranking without engaging and spinning...

How long does it take for the oil to drain out? A longer hose increases the time needed.

Why does it matter where the boat is? The pump works in or out of the water- waiting for oil to drain is like watching paint dry. If you want time to have a few drinks, it's OK, but...

You'll get all of the old oil if you stick it in the drain hose.

Using gravity is a waste of time. Get it done and get back on the water!

If it's thinner and 30 oz, it just means it's more dense. Vinyl is a semi-porous skin with foam behind it in many cases. The EPA made changes to what it allows in the chemical composition, so we get...

Where in the Midwest are you located? What is the boat's service history? Any major work in the past? Any overheating issues? How long did they run it before finding the low compression?

Does the exhaust smell strongly of gasoline when it's warmed up? Next time, open the throttle a bit and see if it starts. If so, check the ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature) sensor.
