JavierB Posted August 17, 2021 Report Share Posted August 17, 2021 Hey guys. so next up is getting a working fuel gauge. the gauge seems to work fine, or at least it will register full if I short it. So I pulled out the old sender unit and it looks like its been through a few wars, so I'm replacing it for sure. NOTE: I removed this through the rear access hole in the trunk. BIG MISTAKE. I can't imagine a scenario in which the unit, even if was in perfect condition could be removed without being completely ruined in the twisting, yanking, bending necessary to get it out that way. For the replacement I plan on removing the rear seats. (the instructions in the workshop manual simply say "remove" which is a bit comical. I know for a fact I'm going to be on this board tomorrow asking for help.) But to the task at hand: I'm buying a new sender unit. any advice? There is one from SI, but is that the same low tech item I just pulled out? There is also a less expensive item from AvantiParts: https://avantiparts.biz/sender-gas-tank/ and also a unit from Classic Instruments: https://shop.classicinstruments.com/sn35 Wondering if anyone has any recommendations/advice on any of these or a better alternative? Both the AvantiParts unit and the Classic Instruments use a plastic neoprene float, but I'm not sure about the SI unit. Thanks for any ideas.
