The new fuel sender has arrived from Craddocks in the UK. Time to see how much fuel is in the tank.
First thing to do was to check the new sender actually works before fitting. To do this a resistance test is done on the rheostat.
Time to fit everything back together…
Time to put the cover plate on. I decided not to use the 6 nuts and bolts as they were a pain to get out due to the proximity to the top of the tank. I wanted to have better access so some spire screws were used. These can be unscrewed (as the name suggests) from outside of the seat box… much more convenient.
Hello, quick question from Canada. I have a series 2A that is being re-built. But my question is about the gas gauge. On the back are the letters L and B. I assume one is ground and the other load? If you know it would be appreciated. Thanks
Hi Russ, this one slipped through as well. Apologies for the delay in responding. I have to say, I don’t know. When I wired behind the dash panel, I deliberate left tails from the factory wiring when i dismantled the vehicle so I knew which wire colour went to which side of dials and switches etc. I can tell you though that the feed wire to the fuel gauge is GREEN and the earth wire is GREEN with BLACK tracer.
Best from Switzerland.
