I need a new fuel line pickup/sending unit for the 66 Fastback's tank and was wondering if there is one available that has a 3/8" tube to match my recently installed 3/8" fuel line. Perhaps a pickup/sending unit for a 70s Mustang is 3/8"; and if so,would it fit the 65/66 tank? Did the 65 Shelbys have the 3/8" line with the smaller/stock pickup? If anyone has been through this particular install, I would appreciate hearing what they did.

67-68 pick up and sender is 3/8 and it fits the 65-66 tank Bernie. I have an NOS one. I don't believe that they are available anymore from FoMoCo. I am not certain if the re-pops are 3/8 or 5/16.

I picked up two catalogs CJ's and NPD. They list one sender for 65-68. NPD lists a new Ford one for 93.33 and a repo for 24.95. Bummer! I have a repo in my 65 and it stinks! It never registers at the full mark. I've just learned to figure when it's realy low.I fill up ahead of time. It could probably be fixed by bending the rod. I have a new Ford one for my 68. Guess that's a rare item.

You can also cut off the 5/16 tube, bend a 3/8 line to match, drill out the hole to the 3/8 OD and get a radiator shop to solder it on. Get you tank flushed while you are at it.

You're right. Should have thought of that seeing as I'm going to have the shop solder in a fuel return, also for the EFI.
