I'm going to install a mechanical fuel guage on our 1984 22 O/R with the 70 gallon built in tank. The electric sending unit is currently cover with a tan colored deck plate. I'm looking for a clear approx. 8" clear deck plate.It's my understanding that the Beckson or Bomar don't fit the deck flange of a PHYI.My perference is to find a clear plate someplace rather than replacing the entire unit. Any suggest or idea's?

Eagleman, check out these two threads if you haven't already:
In the latter, bigz asserts that the PYHI (Bowmar) plates are readily obtainable. I'm not sure that's true but I hope it is for your sake. I tried for years to find a replacement clear plate for my 1983 Outrage, but without success.
Did you finally resolve your fuel supply/motor problems?

Not in clear -- white, stark white and black -- Beckson has clear -- Z

I had the same problem replacing the PHYI inspection plates in my '79 Blackfin.
Although advertised as the same O.D., the Bomar plates actually measure 1/4"-3/8" greater in diameter. No trouble reducing same on a square wheel or with a sanding drum chucked in a drill press, but a bother when they are supposed to be the same size.
