gas tank woes... update and sender/gauge question.
I went with a used tank from JW Jeep Recyclers. I'm replacing all the lines as they look a little worse for wear. Since everything was apart I went ahead and ordered a gas skid from Kilby Enterprises. If I'm going to do the labor, I usually like to upgrade while I'm at it. Strange enough, it was my wife's idea. I didn't say no.
Question: My sender reads about 5 ohms empty and about 100 full. The autometer gauge is set at 0 ohms empty and 90 ohms full. Can I put a resistor inline somewhere to bring my sender ohms more in line with what the guage wants or does 5-10 ohms make enough difference to go to the trouble? If I try to adjust, is there a formula or should I use the shotgun approach? What value of resistor should I start with?
