    Afternoon cruisers,

    I started tackling a fuel guage discrepancy today (I bought a used fuel assembly), I figured somewhere within the assembly there is something not right. Guage is never right. I suspect a bad float but I found a whole assembly on ebay for $50 so why not eliminate this first.

    Problem...

    I found an awesome tutorial by a member on here on how to remove the fuel assembly from the tank. Got to the part of removing the round trim holding the assembly in place by 8 (8mm) screws, and it's rusted very badly. I just spray on some PB blaster to hopefully loosen it but I can tell there are going to be some issues. I'd like to replace the trim piece and the screws.

    Here is the thread which details excellently how to remove:

    This is the part I need to replace:

    I cannot fine part numbers for the trim ring and screws. I am not sure why you want to replace them.

    I also always replace the fuel pump gasket
    OEM 77169-33020.

    Thanks. I was worried I was going to snap a screw. The trim was pretty rusted but I was able to get it off after soaking it with the PB blaster. Guage works perfectly again. Thanks Rockford Autoparts on ebay! I just replace the fuel screen filter with a new one and replaced the.....

    do you have pics of the sender arm? I'm trying to find out if it travels on a copper trace and if the arm might be adjustable to a new path. Mine is very lazy.
    I realize no one has probably taken that box apart. Just checking.
