Fuel Gauge Sender Wireing question

The sender that came with my fuel cell has two wireing conections. One is labeled "G" the other is labeled "S". One must go the the gauge and the other to a ground but does the "G" denote gauge or ground?

Sender Wires

Doc here,

Typically Gauges are marked, "G" for ground, "S" for Sender, and "I" for ignition.

In your Case, The "G" Will go to Ground, The "S" will go to the "Sender" terminal on the Gauge.

Be sure you find a good "Hard" ground for that wire or the gauge / sender will become sporadic over time.

Use a star washer, and burnish all the paint and grease from the area before you attach it, and use a lock-washer.

Doc

Can't argue with the Doc, he's always right on the money. Thanks Doc I don't ask a lot of questions but I learn a lot from your posts and others. Glad to be a part of this great community!!!
