Well....

Well,

Here is what I have got. Didnt take pictures of the whole process but I do have pics of as it sits now - after todays progress.

Tested new sending unit with old gauge, old sender removed, light metal work to flaten out mount with a hammer and dowel {warped/bent a bit}, cleaned holes, re-tapped the holes, vacumed, and washed out the tank, reinstalled the new sending unit with new hardware....etc

May put it back in tomorrow after thread sealant is dry. (and depends on how much rubber I have to line the mounts.)

Cj

Anyways, put boat/trailer up on blocks yesterday. Won't come off of them until the spring when I'm ready to start my projects

Lubricated the steering system (cable and rudder box). What a PITA on a v-drive. Had to remove the water supply hose running to the impeller and from the impeller to oil cooler so that I could get access. Then squeeze into the starboard rear locker for a while. Then stand on my head for a while.
