Crestliner Eagle Owners.. Fuel Sending Unit

Recommended Posts

i'm hoping someone may know.. i have a 2000 crestliner eagle 2450. recently my fuel gauge quit working and I determined that it is the sending unit. problem is, i don't know where it's at. i have no access panel in the floor anywhere that i can find. i'm really hoping that i don't have to pull up the floor to change it. does anyone know?

I'm thinking it's going to be in the tank!

I had a crest liner years ago I needed to remove the two seat pedestals and remove the floor piece and the unit was right there, six screws out and there it was out!! I got one from crest liner and it looked like the same universal ones you get at West Marine, mine I had to calibrate which is nothing more than bending the float rod. Mine was a 1750 with a 30 gal tank.

good info, very helpful. thanks pap!

 

i'm thinking i'll have to remove the seat "boxes" that the seats mount to to be able to get to the floor board. maybe i'll get lucky and there will be an access cover under there so i won't need to pull the floor.

No you won’t have to cut the floor under those box type seats is were the screws to lift the panels out, I forgot to say the guy before me installed pedestal type seats where those other type seats were. Sorry I didn’t think about that!!

no worries, i got the idea.

 

this is what those "boxes" look like. i'm thinking i'll have to pull the port side box to get to the floor board screws. the fuel filler is on that side so i'm hoping the main tank is on that side (2 tanks, 70 gal main and a 30 gal aux). it would make more sense balance wise to mount the tanks in the center of the boat though.. i guess i'll have to see.

I have a 92 sabre and they are in the middle of the floor.  The back of my tanks are just in front of the dog box.  Here's the link to crestliners customer service.  They may be able to help.  You also might try your local crestliner dealer.  If their mechanic has been around a while, he should have an idea.  Hope this helps.

thanks hawkeye, very helpful. i had a feeling i'd be doing a fair amount of disassembly.. i think i'm going to just keep putting fuel in it and wait until the end of the season to pull things apart. i don't want to miss any time on the water because i've got things torn apart.

 

i sent an email to crestliner last week but have not received any response as of yet.

thanks joe.

 

heard back from crestliner.. they're no help. "contact your local dealer". well, there isn't one. i could probably call one and see if they have any info in their technical manuals or something.

I had a Sabre with an access panel in the center wood panel just rear of the seats. If you end up pulling it. May be worth your tome to cut in an access for the future.

thanks sylvan. no access panel on mine unfortunately.. gonna have to pull the floor. i'm gonna have it winterized first before i start the tear down, i don't know how long the job is going to take me to finish so i figure i'll get that done first in case it takes me a while. deer season is here so i tend to blow things off to go hunting  :)

 

mine's a pain to gas up.. have to trickle the fuel in so it doesn't come out of the vent or erupt out of the filler neck. takes forever. i'd love to fix that problem too while i have it apart.. but i don't know what the fix is.

dt5150..... I had a 2150 and had same issues.  If I remember correctly, the vent hose sagged and created a trap point.  When I pulled the floor section to replace a rotted board, I moved the hose and corrected it.  Prior to that I simply put a "no spill" container over the vent when filling and that sufficed until I could correct.  Been a while but I am pretty sure moving that hose and eliminating the point causing the trap was all I did.

thanks relaxer. so if i understand right, the vent hose was just sagging, kind of drooped, and all you did was make the hose more taught?
