Hi:<P>Upon trying to check and fix my 1928's gas gauge, I see it is not electric but it has some kind of mechanical system. Can anybody shed some light as how it is supposed to work and how can it be fixed?<P>Thanks,<P>Victor.

Trying my luck again... I want to repair the fuel gage, but it seems to me that it uses some kind of wire that moves mechanically from a float to the gage. Is this correct?<P>Thanks,<P>Victor.

Victor,<P>I'm not sure about BB's, but AA's use a Grolan gas gauge. The system consists of a sender in the gas tank, a long cable, and the gauge in the dash. The sender has a long lever with a cork float on one end. The other end connects to the cable which has a wire inside, like a choke cable. As the cork raises and lowers, it pushes or pulls the wire in the cable which attaches to a small chain coming out of the gauge. The chain pulls on a drum that has the measurements printed on the outside to be displayed. I hope this helps.
