Question Fuel tank sending unit

Does anyone have a proceedure to bench test a sending unit. I am installing a new tank and want to be sure the sending unit is working before I put it in.

Re: Fuel tank sending unit

If you have a Ohm meter hook up the leads to the sending unit and move the float and your meter should move according .

0 (zero) ohms empty, 90 ohms full.

It sounds like the fuel gauge sending unit is good!

Unhappy Re: Fuel tank sending unit

Glad I checked. The one I was going to use did not work. I had another one that did work but it did not get the 0-90 ohm reading. It went to about 150. I took the one that did not work apart. There is just a contactor on a slide. Pretty simple, what could be wrong? I tried cleaning it up with a little scotch brite and still nothing.
