WTB : FUEL PUMP/SENDER - TN

I bought a sender/pump last year from the classifieds and it has lasted 8 months :( My gas gauge is dead again. Need one in great shape without a ton of miles on it for a 4 cyl 2.3 1997.

I took the pump out my truck, no idea the miles on it, but will cut you a deal on it if you want it.

Long as the gas gauge sender works I'm in. I now have two - going on three - pumps that work, and dead sending units attached to them littering the attic.

Are the sending units really dead?

Mine was fine... it was the float that got filled with gas due to a nearly imperceptible crack.

Soldered the crack after letting the gas evaporate out, and tested it in water to ensure it floated and did not get filled with water. It passed.

I checked the rest of the sending unit over and it's good. Measures fine across the whole scale.

Unfortunately for you, if the floats were full of gas, it would've evaporated long ago, and seeing the gas come out of the float in a certain spot is pretty much the only way to tell exactly where you need to seal it up.

Check the resistance across the entire range to see if it's reading right. If it is, then the float is the problem. I'll check my sender again and post the top and bottom resistance readings. There should not be any 'glitches' or dead spots in the range. It should steadily increase or decrease, depending on which way the float arm is traveling.

In your case, I would find an old pan at Goodwill or the Salvation Army and melt some solder in it, then dip the float in, one end, let it harden, then dip the other end. Cover the whole float with a layer of solder to seal it up.

Looks like mine was the relay, gotta locate the where the Relay is now to fix it.... guess I replaced the Fuel pump for no good reason, but my other one should be good still.

40 shipped? (I wonder if I will have issue with the box smelling of fuel from where the filter is still saturated?)
