My float is stuck!!
After installing and testing (outside tank) my Equus fuel gauge and NEW sender, I reinstalled the tank and filled it with gas. The gauge now shows only 3/8 full with a full tank of fuel. The float inside of the tank must be stuck, since it worked OK outside the tank. Will some rough driving possibly work to get the float working again without dropping the tank again? I know just the trails that would make the fuel splash around in the tank quite a bit.
My guess is the aftermarket float has a hole, or is just cheaply made . My new float/ sending unit lasted 2 weeks.
1957 WILLYS pickup,
1973 J 4000,
1978 CJ7 DD.
1979 CJ7 360, TH400/Quadratrac.
1980 CJ5 trail Jeep.
1989 YJ the CJ to YJ.
I have had this issue before. You should just drop the tank. Make sure the float is in the right position. I had mine turned the wrong way so it was getting pinned because when it tried to rise up it was hitting the side of the tank. If the pickup and return line tubes are pointing to the drivers side it will hit the side and be inaccurate.
