California III fuel sender

Hi all. This is my first post so forgive any newbie blunders!

I’m attempting to remove the fuel level sender from my California III (1988). I’ve unscrewed the collar from the tank but can’t withdraw the actual sender as it stops half way out. Any ideas please?

Righty Ho!

I’ve fixed it. Logic suggests that it should just pull out… and it does… once you’ve managed to chip away the tank sealer that someone poured in sometime in the past!

Result :smiley:
