R2120 Y1990 Questions about fuel tank and baffles

Recommended Posts

Hello! Post from Sweden.

I have just bought my first Robalo. They're rare over here. It's a R2120 from around year 1990, I think. Probably from the Cobia era.

 

The fuel tank is the 100 gallon, but I'm tring to find out if there are any baffles in it?

 

It should be I think, due to it's size?

 

Anyone knows the feutures of the fuel tank?

Welcome to the site! It is great having international members on this forum.

 

Your tank is the same as mine in the 2160. There are baffles in the tank. I am sure there is one, maybe two. I was chasing down a piece of gasket material in my tank using one of those cameras on a flexible shaft, and could not get past the first baffle. I think it is about 8-10 inches behind the hole the fuel float installs in. Your tank may also have 2 fuel pick-ups. These have a screen and check valve in them that could cause problems if debris gets past the end of the tube. I have removed the screens from my pick-up tubes and rely on the fuel/water seperator filter to catch any crud in the fuel system.
