RE: RE: [DML] fuel sending unit problems



I fix and or repair about 2 to 4 a month of the original. Most are
repairable so if you send it in please don't try to take off the bottom nut
or you may mess up the brass rod on the inside. 
There should be lots of the old ones out there since Houston sold out all of
their other ones. If you have any send them to me if you don't want them I
could use the extra parts.
