I’m looking to replace all the gaskets and ports on my 134 gal skyline industries tank. Any idea where I can source these parts? I imagine I can get the sending unit gasket at Napa but the others I’m stumped
You can probably find parts that will work as mentioned above.
Otherwise as we all know companies are sold or merged all the time now days. Skyline is done. As of a couple years ago the people who still had some original parts for Skyline tanks was SMAK Plastics Vancouver WA telephone 360-882-0410. They were friendly and would have sold me parts.
I went a different route. After talking with my boat mfg. I ordered aluminum machined parts from him and retrofitted to Moeller flexible fuel pickup assembly.
Another good source for fuel tank type parts for diy modifications/repairs is https://www.summitracing.com/
Found a photo......I changed my pickups out like this and just bought a blockoff plate from Summit to cover up where sender was...... since I have digital gauges that track all my fuel use.
You can get cut your own gasket material at Napa (rubber & cork combined) and use generous amount of Permatex #2 on gasket. Use #2 as it never fully hardens by design and can take vibrations found in boating and it is fuel resistant. Good luck with project.
Those are same ones that were in mine so likely original.
I have a 215 gallon tank. Place I gave phone number for was only place I found that had them. But look at how it's made. It is about 3 different kinds of metal, which dissimilar metals and moist salt environment are always runaway corrosion. Mine appeared to be copper hose nipple, steel square pickup top and brass base with the 4 holes for attaching to tank.
That is why I went with the machined aluminum plates and used pickups and barb fitting that were aluminum. Still have the stainless screws and they will corrode the aluminum and tend to stick where they touch, but it will take much longer to be "fall apart corroded" like you and I both experienced with the OEM skyline parts. My tank was a 2003 build date and I did this about 18 months ago. I used the flexible Moeller pickups, but they make hard ones like you have there and you can cut to match length if you prefer to stay with rigid tube.
Grunts outstanding info. Thanx.. I think I will go the same route as u.. prolly go get some 3/8 aluminum plate. Moller pick up with anti siphon. Prolly make a plug and fitting for the bulkhead as well.. again thanx for the info and pics!!!!!!
if i remember right the brackets are not available, i do remember someone making them. also fix the deck leak over your tank or you will have to replace them again. i had a striper for 13 years and fix the deck plate leak the first year and and they still looked great after 13 years when i sold the boat. is it an IO or OB? no anti siphon for OB’s
