Hello gang, I've diagnosed my fuel sending unit as bad based on it always reads 84 ohms regardless of tank being empty or full and it leaks when I fill up. Which is the best replacement unit and where to purchase? I also need the ground strap and would like to buy the tool to remove/install the lock ring. Thanks!

There is no good aftermarket sending unit available out there, any you buy will not read correctly. There is a device called the meter master, which takes a new unit and calibrates it according to the best results you can get with the aftermarket. As for the gasket and wrench, and the ground strap, I get that stuff from Mancini Racing. I would use your original lock ring at all cost, and look into cleaning and checking your old unit before I bought a new one and the MM, you may find out it just needs to be cleaned, a new float, and new sock to go right back in.

AZ Desert,
I adjust the float to the empty position that is the most important. The one in my runner came out pretty close just reads a little high at full.

When I fill up, the needle is a bit over full. The first 1/4 tank goes real slow. The next 2 quarters of the tank flash by, and then the last quarter takes forever before it gets to empty. I've learnt to live with it.

Just got the meter match and going to put it in as soon as I can drive the car and fill up the tank. Will post more on how it work's.
