Re: [DML] fuel sending units

Yep.  I believe I saw a picture of Houston's fancy $400 combo unit and
if I remember correctly it has a lever arm with a float attached for
the fuel sender.  My guess is that a float is going to be bouncing all
over the place as fuel moves back and forth in the tank.  What is
ironic too is the new fuel pump/sender does away with the baffle and
it seems like people have been preaching for years that the original
baffle is far better than a tuna fish can.  It seems that Houston's
new baffle is just going to be another fancy version of a tuna fish
can.  Btw, I'm baffling fuel for my carburetor with a tuna can and it
works great.  The only complaint I have is someone else got to eat the

Their $99 fuel sender was a good value and I am very happy with my
unit.  It works good, there is no silly TankZilla box to stash away,
and I don't have to worry about disconnecting stuff such as a fuel
pump or fuel lines if I ever have to replace it.  The $99 DMCH fuel
sender takes less time to replace than it does for me to put gas in
the car.

If you ask me, discontinuing this product was a foolish decision on
Houston's part.  I find this move slightly amusinge since all it is
going to do is give Hervey some extra business.  I know who I will
purchase my next fuel sender from if my DMCH unit fails and can't be
repaired.  :)
