Hello All,
So I purchased the KUS WEMA Reed switch senders and the thread on caps were too small. The thread doesn't seem to match the larger KUS threads which are NPT so I'm at a standstill. Found spare caps aboadard whicsh fit the tanks but no one seems to recognize the thread, which is fairly fine. Thoughts?

Welcome!
I've only used the ones that take a 5 hole mount:

I'm about to do the same project.  If I recall correctly, the large hole is about 1.5 inches to allow for the float.

Hello,
New Members here. We are the fortunate new owners of hull #43 and would like to install  Kuss- Wema Reed switch senders in our fuel and water tanks. Does anyone know the size and thread type for these? Thanks

It turns out to be  a Seaward 11g. Eight week lead time, so I had it welded and will get a magnesium anode.

The hot water tank on my 2005 Hylas 54 (hull 37) has sprung a leak. Does anyone know if these are custom fabricated or off the shelf?
