    Alright so the fuel gauge was still reading incorrectly and i decided to hell with the factory style sending unit (sending unit wasnt reading correct again.) Dropped the tank and measured for the Speedhut sending unit. Hopefully itl be here this week.

    Also ordered a trail gear drain plug for the diff to see if it would fit the fill plug and it did (PN 140032-1-KIT) il be ordering another to replace the drain plug hopefully that one is the same.

    Ok so here it goes.... finally swapped the fuel level sending unit. I ended up ordering the 10.5" length from Speedhut. Was a really straight forward, mounting it was the hardest part because the holes are in a slightly different pattern than the OEM style. Nothing the dremel couldnt take care of. On to the pics

    Holes after some massaging, not pretty i know.

    Everything back in, reset the gauge to read the senders ohm range and loaded with ~4 gallons of fuel
