Post Talk & Fuel Gauge Sender Cleaning

LOL ~ I like the idea of putting the tank on a spit and rotaing it .

As it turns out I didn't saturate the composite float in the sender I cleaned ~ it had massive amounts of fungus crud every where and when I cleaned the sliding contacts in the float I moved the delicate hair thin wire out side of them .

I fiddled with it late last night and it's in and working fine .

Time to clean the gooey crud out of the sender I removed again .
