Fuel Gauge Sender Mk Ii


Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever resolved a dodgy fuel gauge sender. I am certain its not the dash as

I have had that recently done - but now I am starting to think it may not be the sender as the empty tank light works fine? The needle refuses to move past the 1/4 full mark even after an 80Litre fill-up! I think the gauge on the MkII is a non return type i.e. doesnt go back to zero when electrics/engine turned off. Any sensible thoughts gratefully received.

Hi!

According to the w/shop manual, the sender appears to be a normal variable

resistor arrangement.

There is a test procedure given, but it looks like you have to remove it to do it.

You have to make up a tester using three 1.5 volt batteries and a 3.4 watt bulb.

If you intend to do it let me know and I will 'post' the info. B)
