Bought my boat used about 6 years ago. '97 Northwood 191 Pro Tourney with a 3L Mercruiser. My fuel gauge has never worked since I had it.
Thinking about fixing/replacing it now, wondering if it's a job I can handle or if I'm better off taking it in. I'm physically capable of fixing things with good instructions provided.
What are the possible causes? Sender failed? Wiring failed? Gauge failed? The sender is in an awkward location, have to remove the dog house, and reach a few inches under the floor.
My tach and speedo work, so I have doubts that the gauge is bad. The fuel gauge has been stuck at 3/4 for as long as I can remember.
Can I just pull out the sender, order a new one (or comparable one) and replace, or do you have to replace both the sender and the gauge?
All help/suggestions appreciated.
