Post Need Tank Sender for Custom Gas Tank....

I have a custom tank from "NO LIMIT" ( i think-- i did not buy it) with a 1 3/4 inch hole and 5 small bolt holes on the outside.

My question is there a standard for sending units and what should i get for a 350 engine.

Can somebody give me a point in the right direction on this project???

THANKS
Bg

Sending units come with different values ( 80 ohm to 240 ohm ) and others. The sending unit MUST match the fuel gauge for correct readings.

Stewart Warner and Ford Motorsport uses the 80 to 240 range for their fuel gauges.

You also have differnt lenghts (for different depths of tanks) and left hung and right hung units.

any gauge manufacturer will offer a sender you will have to know how much drop the arm needs and what type of gauge you are going to use.(GM uses different values than ford, they use different values than VDO who uses different values than Stewart Warner etc. also in the old days J>C>Whitney used to offer a gas gauge kit with matching sender for cheap that was reliable, used over a dozen of them never had a failure. try them

Would it be possible to go ahead and run the line from the tank to the front end.

I have the frame off and was wanting to do all the "plumbing" done since it was EASY to get to!

Thanks
