New fuel sending unit

Recommended Posts

I am putting a new unit in the tank. It looks like the inlet end, by the filter, should go in the tabs inside the tank. If this is right,#1 how do you do this without splitting the tank? I can't seem to get it in there by 'feel'. #2 Is this important to get it seated in there?. It has been some time since I pulled the old one and I no longer have it to look for evidence of being attached inside. Any ideas on this. Thanks John

A lot of imagination and luck! It took me a couple tries and when the sending unit flange sat right and the bolts went in, I assumed I got it. I was quite uncomfortable that I did it right so I made sure I heard the float move up and down by flipping the tank upside down. I was more concerned about jamming the float. Something I didn't want to find out after installation and a half tank of gas. It's been working fine so far. Good Luck! If I can do it so can you.....Mark
