    Hi fellas, what to do.
    Im fettling a fl6 and im wondering about the fuel level indicator,
    Are they easy to clean up and what would i expect to find OR leave it alone.
    I know it needs a bit of a clean up
    How are they sealed for preasure?
    Any advice is greatly appreciated 20200916_141609.jpg

    The gauge is a magnetic coupled device consisting of a (brass bung with a float on a wire arm inside tank which rotates a magnet) and a map compass which is marked to show fuel level .
