Need a new fuel sending unit, Where to buy?

Looks like my sending unit went south. Gauge reads full hooked up and grounded good. Grounding the tan wire it reads empty. Ohming it out the readings are all over the place.

Wheres a good place to get an aftermarket one without spending $150? The cheaper the better.

I understand that NAPA sells a good quality replacement, better than the cheap ones in the Camaro supply houses. My sending unit is the cheap one from Classic Industries and fortunately it has served me well thus far.

Get the Spectra Premium brand sending unit. They are about $80. I just replaced mine, I got mine through Advanced Auto, I think that NAPA also sells them. Just call your local auto store and see if they can get one for you.

Thanks guys. I ended up going around the corner to Autozone. They have one for $87 and it had a 2 year warranty. Should have it tuesday.
