[Saloon-lovers] Re: Mk VII/VIII/IX Fuel Sending Units

Jim (in LA),

If you really get stuck for the sending units… I have a spare left
and right fuel tank senders, arms and floats. They’re the only ones I
have and I bought them last year (used NOS0 “just in case” I ever
needed to replace/repair mine.

But, If that’s all that’s keeping you off the road then drop me a line
direct.

In reply to a message from Dave G. sent Wed 16 Jun 2004:

Thanks Dave,

I’ll keep your offer in mind, but I have found a couple of
sources. It’s just that I was hoping to find a substitution of
some sort that might save a few bucks. I can assure you that the
lack of a sending unit won’t keep me off the road, at least not for
long!

Thanks again!–

I have never seen a good substitute. Jaguar’s rear wing mounted fuel tanks
are not at all a common design today, probably due at least in part to
concerns about protection of the fuel tank in an accident. Most fuel level
senders are vertical mounts rather than side mounts.
