Anyone know about this?

Yup - I've got a non working one like this holding the place for a new one in my car right now.

1750 fuel gauge

My sender sticks at half a tank. I pulled it out and it looks a lot different from the others posted. I cleaned the resistance wire and wipers with contact cleaner--haven't run the fuel under a half yet so don't know if it works now or not. Gauges are jaeger. Are the centerline senders drop in replacement?

Joe's post would imply they have the correct fuel sender for my car? I've emailed him for clarification. The pictures attached come from the parts book. Definitely no tube. My guess is they are no longer available and people are just modifying the replacement.

Yes, all the new production sending units have the fuel feed tube coming out the top. This is really not much of an issue, as they can be blocked off with a rubber plug or cut off and soldered shut.

Joe

So the ones you have with the tube (which I need)---are they one size fits all? Meaning they read fuel level in all 105 tanks accurately? Are the early spider tanks the same size as the later ones?

69 Fuel sender

I have an original for 105 series, came out of my 69 GTV w/Spica. Anyone still need this unit? Pretty good aesthetic condition. I'll try to snap a picture and post tonight.

I am if it works. You say aesthetic condition - but do you know (or can you test) if it actually works?

There was a guy on here who PMed me that he had one. I agreed to his price and he fell off the face of the earth and never got back to me

It's been a few years and I honestly can not remember what working condition it was in. Let me find out if there's a way to test it... without actually having a car...

perfect - thanks!



Here is how to test:

Take an ohm meter and take the primary lead to the terminal/connector for the fuel level. Put the black lead to the metal body of the sender to ground it. As you move the float up/down there should be a change in resistance. The change should be smooth as you cycle the float.

The other tab /terminal on the sending unit if for the "low fuel" light. Put the primary lead on this terminal now and with the float down (like the tank is empty) the thing should have very little resistance - like .03 or .04
