Re: [DML] New fuel pump/fuel sender.



Marc,

Speaking to James Espey on the topic, there is currently going to be no cap
for the fuel level sender hole if it is removed.  Therefore, the level
sender will stay in place even with the all in one fuel pump/sender.  While
it may be planned for sometime in the future, the sender really does not
take up too much fuel "real-estate" as the sender itself fills up with fuel.
