 That could be Don. I'll recheck it. It looked like it was at about 20 ohms before going open. As I said, it worked before although the gauge never quite reached full, but that could be the gauge, not the sender.
Thanks again for your help and insight.
Geoff.

If it just goes to 20 ohms that would be the reason gauge doesn't read full. At least that's better than showing 1/4 of a tank when it runs out.

 True. Lets face it, it's only the bottom quarter that matters like I said before.
 I whimped out of doing anything today, just didn't feel like crawling around under it. Just one of those days, but it may be Monday before I can get back at it. Weather's crap anyway.
