Re: Gas gauge
Okay your problem is actally in the fuel tank sender . I had the same problem, went through checking the wires etc.
You will need to drop the tank to fix this. You will need to disconnect the fuel lines, fuel filller and the wiring.
take the sender unit out of the tank, and there should be a little cover over the pot for the sender. remove that
and you will see a little arm that should contact the potentiometer (The wires wrapped around the piece of plastic.)
You will need to lightly bend it in so the arm hits the pot as it moves all the way through it stroke. Once you are sure it
is making caontact all the time reasemble and away you go. it will take you 1-2 hours to do. just make sure you
have as little fuel as possible in the tank, do it in a well ventilated area and NO SMOKING while doing it.......
This is covered in most of the service manuals (a picture of the breakdown.) good luck. Did mine in Feb and has
been accurate since.
