Answer

Short Ans. NO! Look at the table and you will see that you should purchase a 17.5" unit. Go shorter rather than longer.

Answered on 12/13/2013 by LARRY GREEN

Answer

No don't cut it . Buy one size smaller and that will be your reserve . Look for an 18" unit.

Answered on 12/13/2013 by WILLIAM KILLEN

Answer

No. Cutting the rod would not be a good idea.

Answer

All this sending unit requires is a hole to slide the tube and float through. It surface screws to the are around the hole and the connections are also on the outside. I installed mine where I removed the old ones but I don't see why a location could not be created. To be sure I would contact Moeller, they are very helpful and knowledgeable.

Answered on 03/03/2015 by DEAN SHELTON

Answer

If you have a Moeller Topside fuel tank there is a cap with gauge for either the 12 gal low tank or the 12 gal high tank. Look at Part # MOE-31004-10 on our website.

is it electrically neutral?my boat is aluminum as is the integrated tank. I do not want to hook the boat up to the battery.

Asked on 05/04/2014 by bas Last Name

Top Answer

yes you will have to hook it up to your boat power so your gas gauge on your dash works, I've got an aluminum boat also.

I returned mine. As it turned out, my issue was wiring and not the gage. My current senders are wired to the ground and to the gage. Moeller was very helpful in my situation and answered my question, I would suggest contacting them to be sure

Answered on 05/04/2014 by DEAN SHELTON

Answer

I cannot answer your question because my aluminum pontoon boat has a poly gas tank.

Question

I have a 1992 moeller fuel tank for my 20' Excel boat. The moeller fuel tank model # is 3014. Will This sending unit fit into the depth of my tank? I can't find any cross ref to the tank dimensions. Also, what gauge should I use with this unit.

Asked on 07/26/2013 by Ruth Hahn

Top Answer

Look at the top of the sending unit presently installed where there will be a type and numbers stamped into the metal. Take pic ok them and cross ref on internet. Also, boat manufacturer should have part info avail. Ask the boat dealer - some times works.

Answer

Ruth I don't know of any book that will cross reference your sending unit. It is a simple process all you need to do is remove the old unit and measure the depth of your tank. pick a sending unit at least one inch less than the depth of the tank.

Answered on 08/28/2013 by WILLIAM KILLEN

Answer

the only thing you need to be concerned with is the length of the old unit, just buy the one closest.

Question

My 14 gallon Moeller came with a swing arm sender. Underway. the gasoline is so wavy in the tank that the gauge is flipping allover the place. Does this sender tend to reflect what's actually in the tank and not the wave height?

Asked on 01/23/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

On my topaz I have two tanks.Each tank has its own sender When I check the tanks I see very little wave action . When I'm Moving Fast I see none. I hope this helps you Safe boating. Tom.

Answer Question

Question

If i have a "4"-5" neck on top of the fuel tank which the sending unit can mount to, can i calibrate the gauge to disregard the neck length and only measure the tank?

Asked on 07/02/2018 by Ted from Long Island, NY

Top Answer

Unfortunately these can not really be calibrated. You would have to adjust the value of the resistance in the sender or adjust it, and it just seems like a little more work than it may be worth.

Asked on 07/31/2014 by james adams

Top Answer

It is difficult to get a measurement, but the sending unit on mine(an 8")is right at 3/4" above the flange .I would suggest contacting Moeller as they offer customer service help.

Answer

If I understand your question, what is the distance from the flange to the top of the sending unit? It would depend on your gasketing materials,but I would estimate it to be very close to 3/4" or slightly less.
