    Thanks Crash... That's the same one I have, ended up bending it to the right a little and now I have an almost accurate reading

    I was working on it today and finally found out the problem. The lead or point where the Yello wire connects is messed up, kind of loose. Now is working but marks half when full... I know, my fault since I bent the unit thinking it was too long 😒

    Thanks, I owned 3 sets, the original 14in with chrome hubs, a set of 15x8 and the 15x10 currently on. Engine still stuck, had a leak on my exhaust system, I installed the headers, since it was wider, had to do new exhaust from header back. The pipe was from an old Integra I had, just welded at the end.

    Thanks Mike for the quick response. Yes, sender moves easily. I bended just a little thinking it was too long and was hitting the end of tank. When I holded beside tank, that's when it look longer, that's why I bended. Sender is not original, is an ebay sender.

    Just plastidipped my wheels Took it for a spin and noticed that my gas gauge stop working, is marking full. Read a couple of post from other members and I think the sender unit is stuck. Took it apart and hook everything up out of the thank and if my move the sender, the gauge move. Put everything back together, but it keeps showing full. I believe it was Mike who said in another post, unplug the yellow wire and if it drops to empty, the sender is stuck. Well, is dropping to empty when yellow wire is unplugged. I bend the sender just like the other member did and still not working. What else can I do? Do I need to replace the o-ring between sender ant tank? Noticed that is leaking around the sender, could that be the problem?

    Thanks Mike. Nice, a 71, what happened to the 521? if you don't mind me asking. I heard you have a lifted 620, that must be pretty cool.

    Thank you all for welcoming me to the Ratsun Family. Other than been 47 years old, the truck is solid. Engine still strong (goes to 70mph on hwy) minor surface rust (bottom of outside doors) and little things here and there. Some of the cons, well, floor pans are bad and firewall is in the same boat. Lost the hood release due to rust, now I have a hole cover by a small face rag. Just this weekend, my gas pedal broke because of rust, had to improvise, adapt and overcome. As you can see in pic, where the pedal was tagweld, it broke and left a nickle size hole. Quick solid fix until I can come up with a better long term solution.

    Hi all, I'm EJ and I love my 72. Is not perfect, but it runs. I've done all the repairs by reading and following all your post and recommendations. I still would like to do more, restore as much as I can but keeping the nostalgia. Here are some pics
