Check it or not

My sending unit just arrived. Do I assume its all ready to install or double check the settings for my gauge first.

I would 100% check it so you don't have to drop the tank again.

Check the ohm values,with some tweaks on the empty side I have 70 ohms. Half full position reads 26 and full reads 14. Is that close enough? Hoping John sees this.

That's pretty close but I would still try to get it a little better if you can.

One of the other things you should do is verify the stoke length of the float arm. Measure the inside of the tank from top to bottom and adjust the swing of the arm so when it is empty, the float will reach bottom. Same as the top of the swing of the float arm when full. Adjust arm as needed and then check Ohms again to verify.
