  1. Fuel Sending Unit suggestions

    Classic Tech
    So I have a brand new gas tank from CJ-P-Parts that came with the fuel sending unit. I used what came with it to replace my extremely old tank that was full with what looked like tar and the OEM sending unit was rusted out. I didn't think anything of it to use the one that came with the new tank...
  2. I can't get more than 6 gallons into my tank

    V6 Tech
    Hi, I'm new to this forum & seem to have a unique problem. I've got a 65 Mustang & I can't get more than 20-odd litres (5-6 gallons) in, before it starts coming out of the filler pipe. I've tried all the old tricks to remove air locks, to no avail. I'm pretty sure the sender unit is working...

  5. Testing fuel sending unit 67'

    Classic Talk
    I was just making sure how to test to make sure a sending unit is working properly. You take the multimeter and put it on ohms. Then take the positive "prong" and touch it to the part in which the sending unit connection is made. My question is where does the ground "prong" go? Does it connect...

    5.0L Tech
    I put the engine out of a 66 into my 88, but since I'm no longer using the in-tank fuel pump I was wondering a good way to mod the tank to get a bottom style pickup you would find in the older cars before EFI was around. Any ideas?

    When i try to put gas in my car, the car won't receive it. We thought there was pressure messing with it. But thats not it. We put the nozzle in there like you normally do, then start to fill it up, but after about 2 seconds, it just shoots the gas back out. Any ideas??
