can anyone tell me where to go for a gas gauge sender? there was a discussion a few days ago about replacing one. a mustang store near me sells them for $33, is that pretty much average? seems expensive to me. also, do you have to remove the tank, or can it be replaced from underneath?

Ford has discontinued the original sending unit, I believe, and the price was high. $33 is about average. I have a repo in my 65 which registers a little over 3/4 full with gas right up to the cap!! I keep track of miles traveled for an indication of fill time. I know that it could be adjusted but do not feel like taking it out. It can be done from underneath, but it is better to do it with tank out. You then have the opportunity to clean out the tank and examine it for other problems, rust, etc.

$33 is a good price for a repop I guess. You do not have to remove the tank to install it. I have an NOS one in the FoMoCo box, but I want more than $33 for it.

Me too!! Full tank only shows about 3/4 sometimes 7/8 full on the gauge with the repo. And, I also keep track of miles, although the gauge does seem to be accurate at 1/4 to 1/8 tank.

One of these days I'll just cough up the money for an NOS one. But I know how much more than $33 they go for.
