hi kanehill...

it's not difficult at all...

basically you...

-start with a really really REALLY clean/empty tank...
-park it so the street side is higher that the curb side or roll the street wheels up on blocks,
-unplug the phone cord (rj-11),
-unscrew the sensor and...
- expect some pooooo to run out, so use a small basin (did ya empty the tank first?)
-wipe the tank threads of all debris
-wrap the sensor threads with silicone tape
-screw in the new sensor hand tight then another 1/2 -1 turn with a wrench,
-replug the phone cord


the challenge is getting access to the sensor.
there is room for a really small hand to reach inside the belly pan but it's a tight fit and awkward.
the factory cut doors into my belly pan over each sensor which makes access much easier.

YOU can do this with tin snips and then make a 'patch' of aluminum or galvanized steel.

there are photos in other threads on this issue so search,

or go to devomans threads, he's got some pics posted too...

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
