I See Aftermarket tank senders at Vans,Epay,Rockauto Etc. Are they all the same ? I Expect they are made in China. Any feedback ? I got some quotes today of 175.00 to Repair my Original sender and wonder if a Repro is worth the Effort.

i bought a aftermarket sending unit around $40. the only complaint i heard when i was looking
was about the gasket. so i went to a good local hardware store bought a 2nd gasket around the same size
factory one against the tank 2nd one against the tightening ring i have no problems at all.
make sure you set old and new side by side and adjust the flote to match the old one,
so I'd buy a brand name from rock auto, just my option,

Most overlooked part. Gauge will not work without. But 10 bucks for this little piece? Makes only sense, if you restore to factory. Other than that, just use something to make an electrical connection between tank and the fuel line. E.g. lightly crimp some wire on both sides.

I replaced mine with an aftermarket sender. No complaints so far (2.5 years now).
