Jim,

Could you open the attachments in my first post?

All the info you wanted was in the troubleshooting guide.
In case you don't have adobe reader:

K101 PIGTAIL TEST PROCEDURE
THE K101 PIGTAIL CAN BE TESTED WITH AN OHM METER AS FOLLOWS
RED TO ORANGE – 0 OHMS
RED TO GREEN – 68K OHMS
RED TO YELLOW – 188K OHMS

Since RED to ORANGE (FULL) is zero OHMS; a short will always read full.

I love mine. They work great.
Your experience may differ of course, but mine has been very positive and was one of the best mods I did.

bonded tank sensors

I was going to put in Horst sensors in my '13 Grey Wolf today, when I found out my sensors are bonded instead of screwed in. Did anyone ever discover an easy way get those things out? Whatever they used is tough stuff. I could drill new holes but that will involve dropping the tanks. That turns a 30 min job into a several hour job.

Are you sure they are bonded in? Can you post some photos?

The OEM probes should be squashed in place and can be pulled through once the nuts are removed...

Hi Herk--
Hope the pic comes through. The metal you see is not a nut but a torix head screw that attaches the wire. It appears to have a large washer, like a fender washer, that is embedded in what was once a soft sealing material. It's hard as a rock now. I'm afraid I will be dropping the tanks and drilling new holes.

Mike,

I have never seen that style of probe before. You would have to remove it to find out how big a hole in the tank there is under that washer.

It is a risk; no doubt.

If I were in your shoes I would do a lot more research and find out who made that probe and what an "uninstalled" one looked like.

Then you can make an informed decision on whether installing the Horst set is even feasible or not. Dropping the tank and drilling new holes next to the existing probes may very well be your only option if you do need to install new ones.

Thanks Lou--
You bring up a very good point and that is I don't even know if the holes for the existing sensors are 3/8 holes. That, and the fact that I'll never be able to get the top ones out, makes dropping the tanks and drilling new holes the better way to go. That will wait for spring.

I think I found it and you may be in luck.

If this is the type you have, it looks like you just unscrew it and it will pop right out. The unit SHOULD be able to be reinstalled after cleaning if the hole in the tank is the wrong size (larger).
