    Can anyone tell me on which side of the tank is the fuel float sending unit located on a 1998 Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard. Reason - Can't find a used unit for my '95 FLHTCU-I. This '98 unit is for sale on ebay. If the float is on the left side of the tank, it should work (minor adaptation required) on my '95. Harley want $115 for a new unit. My '95 is fuel injected and this '98 year unit is off of a carburated unit; but I can't see what difference it would make on a sending unit. Thanks for your help. Joe

    The float is on the left side sitting on the bike.

    Remove your console, 1 screw at the rear, 2 screws under the fuel door. You will see 5 screws holding the sending unit down to the top of the tank. Remove them and lift the unit out of the tank. No need to drain the tank. Book shows to replace the gasket under the unit where it bolts to the tank. You can check the movement with an VOM meter for ohms. If you don't have manual I would get one.
