It's been awhile since I have had a problem but my fuel guage on my forward tank has stopped working. Two years ago, I replaced this tank and it has always been ok. Thinking that maybe I had a grounding problem, today I cleaned the tank ground with no success in getting the guage to work. I also checked the fuses.
When I replaced the tank, I was advised to just cut the fuel lines and use the shark type connector to reconnect rather than mess around with the o-rings and such. Obviously it looks like I have to go through this again, drop the tank and check the float. Can I just cut the lines again or should I attempt to disconnect at the switch? So much easier to cut the lines but reconnecting could be a problem.
If I leave the fuel switch off, can I still drive it without sucking air or losing fuel? It's getting colder and I want to do this job at my discretion.
