View the latest post Fuel Tank/System Problem

I have run the boat from an external fuel tank to determine if I have a tank/fuel system issue. I do. A few questions about the fuel tank/system. Can the fuel pickup be removed? Is there a screen at the end of the pickup that may be plugged? There are two fuel pickups. I have checked for an anti syphon valve in the pickup that feeds the fuel water separator, and there is none. I replaced the very corroded tank vent and that did help a lot. The symptom is that the boat decelerates (when at running speed) after 30 seconds to a minute. This does not occur when running from an external tank. What other items in the fuel tank could cause this behavior? I have checked for water via the separator, and it looks clean. I have heard that there could be sediment in the tank that is sloshing around and prevents full flow to the pickup. Any information on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

Hi, My wife and I upgraded to cruising last year. We dock in Alma, WI. We are cruising a 1990 St. Tropez express with twin 350 crusader engines. We are on water every weekend (when there is no ice floating) and look forward to meeting new friends.

Thank you all and I am excited to learn from this forum!

View the latest post Attachment(s) 1990 180 Sport Owner

New to forum and just wanted to say hello. 3 years ago I bought a 1990 180 Sport and I have refurbished it little by little. What a great boat!

The renovation project was a long one. I had an old Regal Empress 20XL boat that I had repowered with a new Yamaha 150 HDPI back in 2004. I'll spare you the details but long story short, my dad passed and I let the boat sit way too long. In 2018 the motor might have had a total of 150 hours on it but the old boat was past the point of rescue. I tried to sell the motor but ended up finding this Wellcraft that had a bad motor on it. I bought the 1990 Sport and swapped the motors out. That propelled me into 2 years of fiberglass work, gelcoat and other renovations. Now i do projects in the winter and use the boat all summer. It has been great and I get a lot of comments on it.

I can believe I didn't find this forum before. I'm sure it would have been helpful/ Anyway if anybody is doing a similar project, I'm happy to tell you what I did. I took the console out, cleaned the tank, and I have been through this one top to bottom. I am far from finished, but it is to a point where it is fully functional and we use it every weekend.
