    Not sure I understand the question? If you look below the left side of the tank where the wires come out, just follow the wires to the plug and unplug conector #4, then release the pins from the conector and pull the wires up through the top of tank.

    Just curious, is the mate connector above a phantom located in the "tunnel" or in the isolated chamber in the tank?

    It is below the fuel tank, usually stuck up between the tank & frame.

    Thanks Chopper, I am curious if anyone has retrofited a carb tank with a digital fuel guage like the one for 2007 up EFI models? I am thinking of adding one to my Sporty if it is not too crazy an idea. Sorry, I hijacked this thread a bit, as the kit is for newer EFI equipped Sportsters...but may be an option if the mastercylinder/covers are compatible (DOT5 Silicone fluid in my 2004 Sportster.
