With wheel installed.
I think at this stage i had also installed the oil tank bracket under the seat as well as connected it's pipes and gague sender.
The exsisting fuel tank sender was also connected to the Mercury smartcraft system.
I installed an in-line water seperating filter under the seat too although the Optimax has an integral one of these with a sensor to let you know when there is H20 in the fuel
At this point the boat made a trip to see Mr BP. The 200li tank ensured Mr Blair got his share of my savings!
It's essential the fuel system is primed before the ignition system is switched on or the electronic fuel pump on the engine will try and burn it's self out.
So after returning over £150 lighter i primed the bulb and switched on the ignition. It took about 1/2 hr to configure the smartcraft instruments although todate they won't talk to the GPS, but then neither will the DSC set - a job for another day!
