It could work but bewareDespite the poor reviews listed this sender will work BUT you need to know two things. The arm, if installed properly, cannot come off once installed. But the instructions are very poor as to how to install it. You need to make the 90° bend at the end of the arm ;leaving about 1/2" leg. Then you need to remove the sending unit from the frame, install the arm and then mount the sender. if done properly, the arm cannot fall off. So this is not an issue.
However, as I found out after making all the adjustments, I found the SAE pattern on this sender will not work for some boats. My sender aligns longitudinally but this one aligns laterally. So once installed the float hits the side of my tank. If you have a V-shaped in-hull tank and your sender is aligned as mine is, this sender will NOT work. Although not technically a bad sender, it is not universal.
The sender itself is smooth, has a tad of resistance that should help even out the signal and registered fine on my gauge. If you can use it it will work.

Float arm falls off after installationInstalled on a 2001 bass tracker pro 165. After initial installation, fuel gauge was reporting appropriate fuel level. After trailering the boat and getting to the water however, the fuel gauge was just "stuck". After removing the fuel sender, the float arm had detached. Attempted to re-attach with added strength via wire tie, and it still unattached after traveling (going 60 mph down the highway).
Each time the float arm detaches, we have to fish it out of the gas tank. I would highly recommend against this unless you have a game plan of keeping the thing attached.

BassPro Fuel sender design flowI bought a BassPro brand universal fuel sender to replace the original which came in my Bayliner boat, however the mounting holes are in a position which is not compatible with the tank holes. Not only that, but the sender came with bolts 10-32 instead of 10-24 (which are universal or standard). Not noticing this problems I tried to mount the sender and I damaged the internal thread at the tank while trying to put the 10-32 bolts in the 10-24 holes. That gave me a considerable head ache to remake the internal thread in the tank.
In summary, I couldn't mount the sender because the holes were out of position and I damaged the internal thread for the bolts at the tank because of the wrong bolts. Also the rubber gasket is very thin, which I doubt it would be effective and safe.
I will return the sender tomorrow, and I advice other customers not to buy this product.
I have a 2005 Bass Tracker Pro Crappie . How do I get to the sending unit in the gas tank. A wire has come off and I don’t see any way to enter the top of tank. Please advise.

will this work with a plastic removeable tank that doesn't have a sending unit?
I have one of those red plastic removable tanks where the gas gauge is mounted on top the tank. can this sending unit be used with that type of tank?
if not, is there a unit that will work with that type of tank?

Thank you for your question on the Bass Pro Shops Fuel Tank Universal Sending Unit. According to the manufacturer, they do not recommend using the 53260 Fuel Sending Unit in a portable tank, it is designed as a universal replacement used in fixed fuel tanks. The biggest problem would be sealing it from leaking. Most of the portable tank manufactures have gauges that are designed into the cap for their tanks.
