Thanks for the tip Pete, if I was really smart I would have done the last bit of testing when I had the sender out over the weekend..... I did have a small hole in the float which I soldered up and then I filled the tank again, I guess it should be nearly empty by the weekend to remove it again. Do ...

So here's a question for you Pete, it's been suggested that I may have a MK2 fuel tank and sender unit. Assuming that I have a MK2 sender and a MK1 gauge, are they different 'full' and 'empty' ohms readings? In which case a full tank may only give me a half full gauge reading? Pretty sad that these ...

So after taking it out again and checking I put it back in and at a full tank I’m getting half a tank showing on the gauge and approximately 40 ohms at the sender unit. I’m thinking a new sender maybe required, some on Ebay for about $100 cdn which is better than some nos at $500 AUD.........

SU spacer on twin cam

I’m toying with the idea of removing the coolant spacer thingy between the head and the SU carbs on my twin cam. Looks like the bolt pattern will match by putting the carbs straight on the inlet manifold casting of the head. My concern is that I won’t have the ‘ soft mounting ‘ with the Thac...

Yep Mk1 seems to be running good, got to work on the fuel gauge sender, replace some front end bushes ( also the front strut ball joints with spacers etc which looks quite involved 🤔). Thinking of removing the piece between the inlet manifold and the carbs, don’t think it really serves a purpos...

Cortina MK1 fuel sender.

Having issues with my Mk1 fuel gauge reading 1/4 tank all the time. Anyone know what the readings, ohms I believe, should be for sender unit reading empty and full? I have a spare but want to make sure it’s working before installing. Thanks.

You were on the right track Pete, turned out to be a grounding issue. I also didn’t realize, until tonight, that the speedo itself appears to be grounded via the little tabs on the two bulb holders on the back of the speedo. Should now be ready for its first car show at the Brits by the Bess in do...

Hmmm, good question, the old one was screwed to the speedo but the new one was a different style, I’ll have to take the speedo out again and check. Thanks for the tip.

Ok so new voltage stabilizer and still the three gauges all go to maximum straight away. I even replaced the temperature sender with another new one. Any ideas anyone?
