    Why are you replacing the float? Inaccurate readings?

    Our 05 GTX 185 with over 240 hours started giving false readings also, changed float and did not fix a damn thing.......ended up being the MPEM, which is expensive and getting very hard to find.

    The OEM fuel pump is just fine on this year model GTX. A Walbro or Aeromotive is ridiculous over kill!

    I say again, why are you replacing the float?

    OEM pump is all you need, if you want a new one due to age go for it.

    Unless the floats on older skis are different I don't see how that would be caused by the float itself. It's just a wire with a ..well float at the top, it floats. It can't float more than the gas level unless something is physically not allowing it to drop.

    I suspect your issue is not the float itself. Perhaps whatever sensor the float drives or as mentioned the MPEM.

    Same symptoms we had on ours. You can pull fuel pump up and raise the float by hand and watch the gauge group or down with the key on the DESS post, do not start.

    Get ready to spend a bunch of $$$ on a MPEM at a dealership. I was told they are getting very hard to find in the supply chain, as they are not manufactured anymore. Your mileage may vary.........

    Good Luck.
