Lookin Good. Keep up the good work .
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.
I'll be watching for updates!
Which sending unit did you end up ordering? the shorter one?
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
Whats in the box
Comparing mounting holes to the OEM style gasket
Holes after some massaging, not pretty i know.
Wired up a little pigtail
Everything back in, reset the gauge to read the senders ohm range and loaded with ~4 gallons of fuel
Trail gear fill plug, fits the drain location too
And heres a few of these
Had a thing happen yesterday on my way to cars and coffee. Getting it replaced under the warranty.
Forgot to post, got the replacement shock delivered last week. Gotta love warranties.
