    FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT TO FIT BEHIND THE SEAT TANK

    All good advice. I could not use the A-body rheostat 'cause it has a much longer swing distance - seems like about 180 degrees to the truck's shorter 100 to 110. (guessing). The resistances also way different. No big deal, though. I got back inside the damaged part and strengthened where the...

    FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT TO FIT BEHIND THE SEAT TANK

    Hello. I don't fully understand reply. Yes, there is a problem with rheostat, but it is the moving copperish strip inside - that rubs up and down against (fragile) rheostat wiring. In the early 'cab tanks' this mechanism was attached very high so unless tank kept at least 3/4 full, the...

    FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT TO FIT BEHIND THE SEAT TANK

    Sorry - - I didn't clarify well. I meant to say "the door-lock assemblies" - the part attached by inside clip - that you put the key into (from outside, of course). These (truck) items have larger metal trim part that surrounds the key slot. The car units of that era are smaller in overall...

    FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT TO FIT BEHIND THE SEAT TANK

    Thanks for link. I found this seller and he seems to have a variety of sending units - most are at $100. (U.S.) Considering the CDN $ exchange, plus taxes and shipping, the estimated cost to me (door to door) would be very close to $220. ! I will keep looking for more reasonable costs or...

    FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT TO FIT BEHIND THE SEAT TANK

    This is a 1968 FARGO Power Wagon with tank behind seat - so fuel exits out the top. I am in need of the sending unit and haven't found any listings yet. Rockauto may have listing - but under 1969 search - and, it is a back-order item. Does anyone have a reliable source - CDN or USA? Thanks.

    WANTED BRAKE CABLE TO FIT 1968 SWEPTLINE W-100

    This is a half-ton 'short box' with the 8-stud 'floater' axles and 12 inch drums. We need a good right/rear cable with the outer casing part between 70 and 72 inches long. Not sure how much the inner cable sticks out each end but possibly 8 to 10 inches? Also not sure of type of cable 'end...

    1997 Sierra 5.7 L. Vortec Timing Issues

    This truck was running but sometimes would make a 'popping sound' - especially under a load. I am posting for someone so know little info - as it was relayed to me. One recent morning, the truck would not start. It sounded like really low cranking compression. The back and forth movement of...
