Tank Pulled sending Unit Question 1968

Ok, My tank is pulled, i tested the sending unit and it appears to be a perfect 0 to 90 ohms from empty to full when sending unit arm is moved. However, i created a mock up of the arm and it appears to be well short of the bottom of the tank. The tank was replaced recently and the unit appears to be a repo replacement also. Any thoughts on repo tanks and sending units appreciated. Should i just go with the delco unit from classic industries or try to bend the sending unit take up to adjust for this. I had five gallons left in the tank and the gauge was well below E. Thanks for any thoughts on this.

Is that a bad thing?

1968 that started life and a 6 banger with a PG. Now it's a 350 with a TKO600, Moser 12 bolt, Speedtech LCA/UCA, ATS Tall Spindles, Hotchkis Springs, Forgeline ZX3P, C5 (Kore3) brakes with other cool stuff from Ron Davis, Vintage Air and soon to be Terminator EFI.

I believe you'll always have a few gallons in the tank when it's on E.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Re: Tank Pulled sending Unit Question 1968

The first Gen gas tanks are 18 gallons. If you divide that by 4, that comes to 4.5 gallons of gas. So you will have some left over in the tank, when the gauge reads on E. When you fill the tank with gas, does it read Full on the gauge? Fill the tank and make sure the needle on the gauge reaches the Full mark.

Re: Tank Pulled sending Unit Question 1968

Sorry, this was a quick post for a problem i posted in another thread awhile back. Bascially, at full to just above empty, it is 9 gallons to fill the tank. So, from my take, i have 9 gallons left when the tank reads E. I can deal with bit of off, but i thought that was a bit much. So i did all the ohm test, etc with tank on. It just bugged me too much to have that much left at E.

Re: Tank Pulled sending Unit Question 1968

I've got the obosite problem. My '67 runs out of fuel while showing 1/4 tank remaining also shows above full mark when full. Sending unit is aftermarket.I planned on pulling the tank and playing with(bending) the pick-up tube and float to get best indication. Any ideas on proper calibration?
