Default 1984 Fuel gauge sending unit

I fried mine while testing fuel pump. is there any way to repair or just buy the sending unit? or do I have to buy the whole assembly?

you can buy the sending unit by itself from some of the vendors on here. Be prepaired to hold onto you wallet

Sorry, have to buy complete assembly and be careful when I was buying one, the first one they sent me had rust, second was any better, but third shined, so shopper beware.

Also get new gasket and boot!

There are several vendors on ebay selling a stainless fuel pump strainer and sending assembly for about $100.
It comes with a new pickup filter, and a small section of the special in tank fuel line needed for installation.

It fixed my sending unit issues, and the new strainer/filter fixed some fueling issues i had when my tank was below 1/2.
