Fuel Sender resistance 1951
Hi, does anyone know off hand what the resistance of the fuel sender would be, empty and full? on a 51 Hornet.
I converted the car to 12v, I never had it running on 6v, so I don't know if the gas gauge ever worked right. I did nothing to the gauges, the original 5 volt instrument voltage regulator seems to work fine on 12v. The temp gauge acts like it should. The gas gauge, however, shows a little over 1/4 tank when the tank is full, and just below the last line at E when it has about half a tank.
I'd like to do a little bit of diagnosing, perhaps substituting a couple resistors of the correct value for E and F, to see if the gauge is working, before pulling the sender out.
