    Looking to find someone who may specialize in old fuel senders/pickups.

    The tank that was in my '47 Dodge now seems wrong, and the sender assy that was in it got lost when it was removed to have the tank cleaned and coated. The radiator shop that did the work swears they gave it back, but it is nowhere to be found.

    It has the ring type retainer rather than the bolt in style. Looks similar to what all the cars from the 60s and up have only smaller.

    I'll try to get pics soon so that maybe someone will recognize it.

    Why not just go ahead and convert the tank and add a new gauge.
    Fuel sending units generally come in at least 3 different types ( all 12 volt ).

    1) 0Ωs Empty / 90Ωs Full
    For most GM vehicles 1965 to 1997. Will not operate on some 1998 or later vehicles with 40 - 250 Ohm sender.

    2) 73Ωs Empty / 8-12Ωs Full
    For most Ford vehicles before 1989 (ecept 1987 & later Mustangs) and most Chrysler vehicles

    3) 240Ωs Empty / 33Ωs Full
    Most Stewart Warner and some Autometer aftermarket gauges.

    For 240 Ohm Empty / 33 Ohm Full Gauge models.

    Adjustable for 5" - 24" deep tank. Fits standard 5-bolt mounting flange.

    That's the screwed up part - It's already been coated inside. I'd have to braze the hole shut, and put a sender somewhere else.

    I need to take a pic of the tank so that maybe someone will recognize it.

    Here's the tank. Maybe someone will recognize it.

    I really need to find someone who may be able to supply a sender assy.
