I have the factory 20 gallon poly tank. To get the sending unit out, do you just unscrew the large hex bushing? My strap is broken and I need to replace My strap has a hoop on the top of it that the fuel lines are retained in. Iíve seen replacement straps, but none of them seem to have a hoop. Anyone know where I can get that?

Yes-Just remove the plastic hex nut.
Do make note of the position of the sending unit's 'head', and reinstall in same position.
Pretty easy to make the strap from EMT strap-tape.

Have'n you along-Is like loose'n 2 good men
