Help with fuel gauge

I have come across an auto meter sport comp 2 5/8" fuel gauge. Printed on the face is the model # 3513. I can't find this gauge listed anywhere and need to know the ohm range so I might use it. Any help?

i have found a 3314,3315,3316,3317,3318,---2 1/16
I also found a 3514,3515,3516,3517,3518--- 2 5/8
taken directly from autometers website

could the number have been 3518, but part of the "8" wore off?

this is an older gauge I guess because it has a slightly different face than the model shown at the autometer sight. The numbers are printed behind the glass on the face. and have not been scratched.

I would call Autometer direct and ask them. If it is a gauge that they don't offer any more they will still have the info on hand. It would be your best bet.

VDO makes a guage and sender that match for less than $100 bucks. If its not about the money these are nice guages. GM ohm=0-90, Ford=90-180 ohm. I personally use the GM. As long as you buy the matched guage and sender its an easy install and wire up. I am sure about the GM ohmage, may get corrected on the Ford? Ask a dealer what the ohmage for your vehicle is and maybe you can just buy a universal sender with that ohmage?
