If you did it online pull up your order number and if it hasn't shipped cancel it or refuse the package. If you don't please let me know how it came out because I need one bad and you maybe the one who found the one that works unless there all made by the same company and re-labeled.Well I ordered one today from GM Parts East.... It cost me $264
Good morning mike if I sent my unit out for repair do they make a cap for the tank so I'm not stranded without my truck? Also mine starts registering when the tank is about at 10 gallons with the original unit so that wouldn't be a ground issue correct?Dave, you want to check that one very carefully against your current unit when it arrives. Some retailers have mistakenly started selling MonteCarlo sending units as being generic for G-bodies, but the angles are all wrong for the Elky.
no way to drive without the sender in it. you can buy the reastat and do it yourself. it sounds as if the rap of wire in your reastat is broken
Dave, an option is to have your's repaired. They are no longer available, and really hard to find used. Even if you find one, it will probably need repair anyway- mine did!
If it's the sender that needs replacing, you can buy the rheostat and solder it on, or get a working non-fi sender and swap the rheostat, or send it it for repair.

The sender is 0-90 ohms. I took one off a new non-FI sender and brazed it onto the FI sender. Couldn't get the picture to load, but here is the website where they are available. Maybe your Internet is faster than mine!!Thanks if I can find what the rheostat looks like and the elect. rating I can buy it I'm in the elect. parts biz.* or a part number . If anybody needs this and know what to ask for look up on google Carl Holmes Co. in Glendale Ca.
