Got home last Friday from a three day trip on the GRiSO.  Just as I pulled into the drive the oil pressure light came on, went to pull the dip stick and saw the  lower part of the motor was covered in oil.
My local Repco shop didn't have the the right Tridon switch so I bought one that had the same dimensions and connection and did a search to see what was involved in changing it out.

Wasn't looking forward to disconnecting the fuel line to remove the tank, so was pleasantly surprised to find  I could prop the tank up enough to have plenty of room to work.
Just as well as there was plenty of crud and oil in there to clean out.

Also the fact that the switch had a 24 mm hex nut meant you had to improvise a bit with a 24 mm or 15/16 spanner and a shifter to tighten the switch.

As a bonus found why an overfill dumped fuel on the gearbox.  The overflow hose had come off one of the nipples on the rear of the tank.

Looking good in there now. Thanks for the tips. Many of us may have to do that someday.....

Wow, thanks for the pic of the fuel tank.  I've removed mine many times but now I can see removal may not always be necessary.
Everytime I remove the fuel line I say a little prayer - and we all know why.  I hope I haven't tempted the gods now
