Since Ford used a lot of K&S fuel gauges with a 73-10 ohm scale I’m speculating it is likely the same scale for the unit I have but don’t want to make an uneducated guess and purchase the wrong sending unit.

    Can anyone verify what the ohms scale for this era of K&S Distometer gauge may be? Thank You

I did a test requiring only 4-AA batteries wired in series to provide 6 volts and a $2 potentiometer that I scaled with a multi meter to determine the operating range for my gauge in ohms. Quite simple really...
