Hard to say if not in person. But try it out. If it sounds good (enough), then why not? For 500 dollar... even if it will be kind of a project, having a base for 500, I personally would do it. More evn, if you don't need it as your regular driver right away, I would do it.

Open the hood, look above the battery to the right under the inside of the fender. It's about 4x6 and an inch thick. Black plastic box.

Same issue here. Dodge 77 b200 van.

I replaced an old sender with a sunk float for a new spectre part from rockauto for a 22 gal tank.

I tested both the old and new units outside of the tank: with the floats manipulated to full sweep, the dash guage read 3/4 with both units. I read that someone elses gauge also reads only 3/4 on a full tank, so I was willing to accept this as a quirk. (I'm in the UK so I just assumed it's a thing for them to never read over 3/4 -maybe they never did from factory?) So I assumed the new unit was calibrated the same as the old one.

I have to try hard to brim the tank, with the nozzle clicking off at the station. I can get the guage to read 3/4. But then with some driving it drops drastically! After 6 miles I'm at 1/2 and another 6 miles I'm at 1/4. I'm pretty sure when it hits E I've still got most of a tank left.

I have tested the guage by earthing the sending unit and witnessing the dash gauge peg to full.

Getting a 5v reading from the dash volt reg too.

Anyone throw any light on this or did chanceafrica find a solution or any information?

Its been a few weeks but finally got the van in my buddies shop. Hopefully we can get this motor out in the next day or two depending if our off days line up. He is a firefighter and I work for the power company which is a bad combo scheduling wise

Customs are fun to build but IMO you can't just do one thing, it's either mild or full on. Here's a '34 Ford P/U I wanted a better back bumper than stock, ended up taking an 8' Winnebago, shorting it a bunch, curling the ends in a bit and boxing back side ends. Pull out a pin and the license plate pulls off to expose a receiver for a towing ball.
I think I will just order a '78, make it fit & keep my '75 rear and have it done in the winter when van won't be used.

Thank you! The chrome trim is Cowles chrome trim in matching sizes to the thickness of the MDF wood. I got it from Amazon.
