Default Fuel Sender

Can someone please let me know the location and how to remove the fuel sender on a Maxum 2400 SCR (1996)? There doesnt seem to be an obvious fitting near the fuel connection.

Thanks

It's on the top of the fuel tank at its backend. Look in engine compartment for the back of the tank and a round metal plate, that's the sensor. See attached picture although not the best to see this. Lower left side with the green wire.

Make sure the tank is about half empty before removing. After you replace it and fill the tank for the first time check for leaks before turning anything on.

Good morning All!
Just looked at this as I was about to answer Kevin as I have the same boat and saw Mikes reply!
Mike!
I thought you and I had the same boat,Looked at the photo and said to my self how come you have so much room in the engine room, then I noticed NO ENGINE! Lots of storage and easy on fuel! But not a big change of scenery though!
OK! You were doing some work! Lots of work! Looks good!

Good Morning Mike!
I don't think I have enough fuel to make it there!!
And trailering to you Mike would be a major task as I would have to go south then north because we just came back from Wy. and would do anything to not drive through that wast land again!
Have a good day!
Don
