Fuel Gauge Issues need some direction
So i just bought my YJ a few months ago and like all jeeps it needed work. I have been replacing parts here and there making it more reliable. (when i got it the previous owner had cut out the fuel gauge completely). So i ordered one, dropped the tank to verify everything was good and then hooked everything up and when I move the floater the following happens.
when i move the floater to full it only goes to a little over 1/2 tank. when i move it to empty the gas gauge goes to full.
I haven't had much time yet to mess with it any further yet so i was just looking for some direction. (I am thinking i may have got the - and + swapped (but that wont address the full movement). Also after i drained the tank (and dropped it) i went to fill it up and it took 19.4 gallons to fill up. that being said I also believe the sending unit is for the smaller tank, but could be wrong.
thanks for any help.
