I just got a replacement fuel sender from Centerline. The problem is the old one had a housing that holds in the fuel pump and it wont fit on the replacement. Theres no room to get the clamp around it. I just reinstalled it without the housing. Anyone ever run into this? Do you have to use the housing? Im assuming it's there just to prevent the pump from falling.
Thanks

Fuel Sender Replacement

Joe;

I bought a replacement sender from IAP and used a larger collar clamp to secure the pump to the assembly. I actually also had to cut some of the pump metal bracket so the new pump/sender assembly was the SAME height as the original.

Just make sure you check and clean the rubber fitting that connects the sender to the pump, and the float arm swings port-to-starboard (L-R) so you don't keep getting the low fuel light when you stop and go. Also that entire assembly should fit snugly into the bottom of the tank and be careful of the "T" filter on the bottom of the pump as you put it into the tank.
