Need Radio Shacks Part Number for their Potentiometer

I need to find the right part number for a Potentiometer for my CJ's sending unt so I can calibrate the fuel gauge.

Does anyone have that number?

Thanks,
Jim

I prefer fixed resistors though. I know what resistance I'm using right away.

Thanks John. I was thinking of the fixed resistors to obtain the 73ohm as mentioned in the other post but not sure if that will fix my problem. I'm about ready to put a sight glass in the tank

Might have to ask you how to how them up though

Still couldn't figure out how to make the pots work other than fixing the sending unit...

Thanks, I'll try it and see.

Question on the connections.

The center on the Pot is the MAIN ground on the body correct?

Then the other two get hooked to the:
1. "S" terminal on one tab.
2. The other tab ? - does that get hooked to the ground on the gauge?

I would have to look at the directions when they come.

Thanks,
Jim
