It's been 5 months since your post. I don't know if you've already replaced the Gas tank. I have a 1999 Maxum 2300 SC and I had to replace my gas tank. Unfortunately you have to pull the Motor. No way around it. Then the bulkhead forward of the motor must be cut out. Then the gas tank will slide into the engine compartment. This is not that easy. The Gas tank is kinda glued into place so be ready for a lot of cursing.
To make the reinstallation of the new tank easier I had the new gas tank custom welded one inch smaller by the OEM supplier of the aluminum gas tank. I lost capacity. Instead of 70 Gallon now it's 67 but who gives a crap. It made installing a million times easier than the original.
I hope this helps. I have a guy who will pull the motor and reinstall it for $300. That is if you live in Central Florida.
