    I have read mostly bad things on the board but is anyone using one who is happy with it? I bought one if I test it with an ohm meter and it’s in range is it worth Installing? I don’t want to do it again. The original still works but the tank is leaking when full.

    I have to wonder if it's the O-ring that is leaking.

    Heck if the old one is working, drop the tank, figure out the leak and if it is the O-ring, replace it and then check how well the ground wire it attached to the sender as well as the other connections.

    Also while you are under there see how well the rubber lines are that are attached to the steel lines.

    I just replaced my original one with one from NAPA with no issues, took them a couple days to get it though.

    Just dropped my tank. The factory sender has two lines coming out of it but the replacement only has one. Is one a return and do I need it?

    I’m done with oer the ground cable on the sender isn’t long enough to reach the ground the tanks installed but the fill tube is too high in the body to get the cap on. Anyone have this problem f OER

    Bent the filler so it’s acceptable but now the stock gas cap doesn’t fit the new tank
