Are you sure the sender is actually bad? Not much to it: a variable resistor with a lever driving the wiper.

Don't recall exactly how it's hooked up, but it can't be that hard to figure out (the shop manual has it in detail, but that's at home.)

You could always pull the sender off and take it apart to find the problem; wouldn't be like you'd be breaking something that was working.

I did that with mine and 2 others i was given by an outboard breaker.

all the same..... full of green Sh*t. i guess mainly copper chloride or sommat similar from the guts dissolving in seawater.

the Yam dealer said "thats normal" spend your 160 on something more useful!

theres one thing these potentiometers arent and thats waterproof!!

Exactly like mine was. Interesting remark from the dealer.
