There is a company in the mid-west that will rebuild your's reasonably. I can't remember their name, but a simple search should put you in touch. They specialize in repairing sending units. A friend of mine used them to fix his sending unit for his 1975 Monza, since they are not available.

Did you by chance test the gauge with a resistor? If you haven't you may want to try picking up some 10 ohm resistors from Radio Shack or some place similar, and then test the gauge from the back of the Jeep.

This isn't precise, but it's close. the idea here is to see if the gauge is at least moving using the existing wiring and the gauge.

A full tank equals 10 ohms.

1/2 tank equals 23 ohms

Empty equals 73 ohms.

20 & 70 ohms resistance will be close enough to watch the gauge needle move.

Ground out a 10 ohm resistor and touch it to the sender wire going to the gauge. You should have a gauge reading "full".

Now, string 2 resistors end to end (series) and re-test. You should get 1/2 full.

Same thing with 7 resistors, or whatever adding to approximately 70 ohms. You should get close to empty. You could also use a variable resistor and an ohm meter to set it. You get the idea... imitate a working sender to test the gauge.

The cool thing is you can do this to the temp gauge as well and you can do it without removing the gauges from the dash

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

But for the original question, I had a couple Omix senders die on me, so I bought a Spectre sender last year, and its still working great. It is a different design that the Omix and Crown that you usually see.

That's too bad. The grammar Nazis are the ones who pay attention to details and very likely to have correct information when there's conflicting information given on a subject.

I guess the quality of the forum is going down the tubes then. Anyways, I think it actually improves the quality since users won't sound like a bunch of uneducated Americans.
Also using the word Nazi is just plain ignorant. Then again, I'm not sure what part of the sticks you're from so it might be a commonly used word.

BTW, I'm saleing a set of mesh headlight and turn signal covers. PM me if you be interested dog...... Word!!!!

Setting all that aside, how is the trouble shooting coming along?
