Do I have to remove the cover to access the shrader valve to release the pressure on the fuel line on a 07 monsoon? thanks all.

On my 08 monsoon I took the cover off just enough to take a peak to find the valve. It is accessable under the cover. It was in the area where my ignition wires went in. The valve cover should be pointed to the side of the boat and was about 2 inches under the cover. The did notice that my small hands could get in the tight space but someone with big hands (such as the indmar dude, gorilla, who tightens on the oil filter to tight) might just have to take the cover off.

This might be a stupid question, but are you releasing the pressure for winterization purposes?

The reason to release the pressure is to change the fuel filter and not have fuel spraying all over the place when you pop off the ring clip on top of the fuel tank.

Don't forget to open your fuel tank cap too to relieve tank pressure.

um, it's an open system, unlike a car. You know, that little vent thingy near the gas cap? ;)

Even on the newer boats with the fuel pump in the gas tank?

did it today, and with better light, you can see the cap for the valve to release the pressure and can reach without removing the cover, not much spillage at the pump / tank, and went well, definately a job to do each season as the filter is like $2 and it take about 5 minutes.

Good point. I think it is pressurized from the pump forward, but not necessarily in the tank. Otherwise the vent wouldn't be there, right? Dontknow.gif

My 03 has the vent Jack. Does your 08? With todays emission standards I wonder. Haven't really paid to close attention since 03 and MEFI 4.

Yup, vent is there next to the fuel fill on the port side. I'm thinking that the in-tank pump is what pressurizes the fuel system. Cracking the cap on the fuel fill will do nothing to alleviate pressure because the tank itself is open to venting.
