    Anyone know the easiest way to repair a gas gauge that doesnt work? Is there some sort of float in there that needs replaced? It's an 89 Sea Nymph..Thanks

    Check guage for power and ground. If thats good, then ground the sender lead, the guage should go to full. If it doesn't the problem is in the guage. If it does go to full then the sender in the tank is bad or possibly just stuck.

    wait till the annoying neighbor is away then go over at night, take his & replace it with yours. Install good one in yours. Works with cars, dont know about outboards.
