    Default Sorting out 82 505 GR 'Fuel Sender Unit'

    I have placed a posting on 'Parts Wanted' for a 'Fuel Sender Unit' for an 82 505 GR.

    On the 'Web' I did find this reference.....on a page by Europarts.
    FUEL SENDER UNIT 504S LATE/505 >83 RING P152674
    The posting may be be quite old.
    Does anyone know if Europarts is still at 313A Reserve Road, Cheltenham Vic 3192.
    I have tried to telephone a couple of times last week 03 95833766 without success.

    It is all because the fuel guage on my 1982 505 GR (XN1 motor) is not working.
    Temperature guage works so I expect the fuse is OK....but will check !
    Wires on 'Fuel Sender Unit' in boot under round 4 inch diameter black plastic cover are there and so
    I guess it is a dud 'Fuel Sender Unit'.


    Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide.

    This is the steel tank model, right? The senders will be the same for all petrol cars from 1980 to (probably) early 1984.

    Our 84 SR had the 70 litre plastic fuel tank, so I think that will be different to the one you want.

    I havent heard about these playing up, but I suppose it's got to happen eventually. I know 504 fuel tank senders ended up with broken windings.

    It might pay to take the old one out and check it to see if anything is obviously wrong. It pay also pay to check the continuity of the cables betwen the terminals and the instrument panel.

    The Europarts contact details are correct and current.
    Ted often can't get to the phone if he's flat out or with a customer. Persistence will pay off though.
