Fuel Tank Sending Unit 1999 Maristar

This is the one that SKIDIM has for my Maristar. My Tank reads FULL all the time.

Does this type sending unit have nay User Servicable Parts?

Or do i need to go buy this one here?

Must be the day for senders you'll pay about $20 less if you go here, http://www.isspro.com/categories.php and if you call them they'll give you all the answers you need.

Well, I found out if the Gas Guage reads FULL, and you go back to the sending unit and UNPLUG it, that if the GUAGE Drops to EMPTY, the Guage should be fine, and the sending unit is Broken.

2nd TEST:

If you use a jumper to the 2 wires going to the guage, and the guage goes from EMPTY to FULL, then the Guage is working.

There is a foam float inside the sending unit that will swell and get stuck. Take it our, sand it down and it will buy you some time, but the unit is on it's way out 9 outta 10. Make sure not to lose the magnets in the foam float

Thanks Flipper! I filled up yesterday on the way home not thinking about sending unit...So I will be "Forced" to take the boat out but once again and use up most of the gas...

I did find out that the current installed OEM product is from MOELLER MARINE. the Part Number is 395-060 Unfortunately, when i called, their computer system was down.

Is there any reason, I wouldn't want to go with them, or is Skidim better?

I called ISSPRO, and they said that their unit is different and I woul have to take it apart and get length from origional unit...

Not sure if they still supply MC with senders but they were standard in all MC's and my original one was stamped isspro, but then that was for a 98 PS.

Maristar-Man...where did you end up purchasing this unit from? I need a replacement and can't find anyone open to tell me what part number it is or where I could order it from. Thanks.
