Re: [DML] fuel sending units



The unit looks similar to the ones used in GM cars.  There are different 
style pickups, some pick up off the tank bottom and some pick up from 
the bottom of the sump.  The fuel pump used is likely a higher pressure 
version one since today's fuel injection runs lower pressure than the 
DeLorean's.

> FYI - James brought one of the new fuel pump assemblies to the MidAtlantic Fall Tour last year. It is impressive looking. As you know everything is in one unit. It is spring loaded so that as you put it into the tank and push it down, it compresses a little so that you know that it is bottomed out. The info that we got is that the sending unit info is dampened so that the gauge doesn't fluctuate and that the fuel pump can be replaced by itself if needed. It sounds great, but until I talk to people that have it installed and working, I will withhold judgement.
