    Bob - I am ready to send funds but haven't checked my gauge. Do you think I really need to bother? 1998 22 with plastic tank and gauges from the the factory. Don't know what they are but have a black face and have "Donzi" at the lower edge.

    From what I have seen, there hasn't been an analog gauge that hasn't worked. I would be willing to bet that there will be no problems. If there are, we will make it work or I will take it back.

    Guys,

    I have 4 left from this current order. I would really like to move these soon.

    Due to the fact that I am still in the red, I am going to have to raise the price of the sender by $5, to $75 for future orders. I was hoping to be able to lower the prices sometime but that thought was based on some volume. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I didn't do this to make money but I didn't do it to lose any either.

    Also, if anyone had contacted me before and I sent you out to check you gauge and whatnot, I will honor the original price. I realize everyone is not on their boat daily and getting some info is not easy sometime.

    This has been a learning experience for me and I have gathered quite a bit of info on tanks and gauges. Pretty cool experience if you ask me. If you have some questions about your boat or gauge, drop me a line and I will be glad to help you out as best that I can.

    Oh yeah, some of my neoprene gaskets have been back-ordered and I will have them in a couple weeks.

    Thanks, Bob

    I finally got around to installing my new "Tidbart Sender".
    It was a breeze, especially with the detailed instruction page.

    As mentioned in the directions, be careful to align the gasket to the sender and the sender to the tank before applying the Permatex, since the five holes are not symmetrical.

    I'm looking forward to burning some gas and watching the gauge accurately inform me of my fuel status!

    Installed my Tidbart Sender this morning. Installation was tough for me - the sender was not fully under the access hole and 3 screws were shielded. I had to use an off-set screw driver in a tight space. If this is the case for others, I would recommend using hex head or allen head screws. I tried to find some at Lowes and Home Depot but had no luck getting the right size.

    Prior to installation, the gauge read about 3/4s. After installing the Tidbart Special, it read 1/2. Hope when I run it next, the needle goes down rather than up

    This is good. Right off the bat it shows the inaccuracy of the float sender.

    I am going to run my boat tomorrow and will get a good look how the gauge reacts.

    RD, I pick up button head allens and regular allens AND some phillips head screws yesterday as I am not looking forward to the install.

    Couldn't get hex heads.

    Like you, my sender is forward of the deck plate by 3-4 inches.

    I may have to cut the hole a bit and run a larger deck plate.

    Next week end will tell.

    You could always just pull the deck off

    Has anyone with the older boats used one of your sending units succesfully. My sight gauge throught the floor is always suspect to me. Would love to have a gauge on the dash that "really" works. Tom

    Tom, it depends which tank you have. Take a look at page one and the incompatible tanks.
