There is a legacy thread here somewhere on the ground wire. Something to this effect: MC said don't ground there, even though we did. Run a ground to another part of the boat and not on the filler neck.

My experience has been to leave the green disconnected. Done deal for me. Fuel sender works and no ground to a fuel filler neck.

Kinda' like the battery sitting within the same enclosed area as the fuel cell (on my 93). Something about that made me uneasy. I moved my battery to the front under the observer seat.

Fuel tank cleaning

Been trying to get rid of the tide line on the exterior fuel tank ,I cannot bring myself to put back looking the way it does.
Tried truck wash , petrol ,toilet bowl cleaner ,wheel acid all been left to soak and scrubbed but nothing seams to move it .

Any ideas on this

Wet sanded the transom 800 ,1200 then compounded, comes up okay but I can still some light scratches so will need a another pass.
Got rid of all the dirt in the hull , need to compound all the inner gell areas which have been stained by the steel staples used on the trim panels .

Still waiting on the engine block to come back from the shop.

Try mixing up a "hefty" solution of Iron Out in a large enough container. Set the tank in and weight it down. Let soak for a couple of hours and rinse it off real good. It does need to soak though; just wetting it won't do much. That does wonders on rusty surfaces, it may just work on this.
Good luck. The project looks like it's moving right along, very impressive.

I wonder if oxyclean would clean the tank or maybe chlorine. Just guessing here
