Speaking of gas gauges, my 85 G body has a weird issue with the sender. It reads half tank in the full position, and empty at the bottom. The gauge reads 0 ohms at empty and 200 at the top, but the gauge doesn't register that. I know a 0-90 is appropriate, but even with 200 ohms I can't get a full reading.

I am doing an in tank fuel pump conversion so I need a separate sender and pump assembly. Any ideas? Thanks!!
It would be better to start your own thread rather than tag someone else’s. You will have a broader base that you reach. Always Always check your power and grounds first…

Not completely 😂 the bottom will be flat black and the top that is brown now will be flat white, the bed will have a roll in liner kit and the camper top will be on and off depending what we are doing and where we are going..🏁😎
Thanks for the great deal on the topper Cyberray

Today we swapped out the donated and wore out rear shocks. Got a set of KYB shocks from another member on here and the difference is like night and day. The blue shock took about 4 minutes to rebound 😂

With Belton just days away, I thought I’d have the original quadrajet rebuilt and put it on for better fuel mileage over the long drive. It wasn’t happy so I got a 850 quadrajet and put it on,, nope it didn’t like that one either. Wound up putting the 650 double pumper back on … see ya there 🏁
