Re: [DML] Fuel Gauge Sending Unit dilemma

Hello Jack,

Notice I didn't say Hijack!!  Sounds like your fuel
sending unit was original, and if it was, then it
could be as simple as the new plug is not making any
contact with the old one.  Try cleaning it up with
"contact" cleaner from Radio Shack or any other
electronic parts store source.  If nothing is working,
then, this is most often the cause.  If you want to
check both units, all you have to do is connect either
one, (outside the tank) and tip them so the float goes
to the other end.  IE: If it is connected outside the
tank and in the upright position, it should read
empty.  If you tip it over and the float should go to
the top, then you should read full on your gauge.

Now, I have a question for you.  Why did you change
out a working sending unit??  Yes, I know an original
sending unit is plagued by sloppy readings, but if it
worked, (to quote an old military term), why screw
with it??

If my suggestions are vague, please contact me off
line.  I am able to rebuild some of these and might be
able to help.
