New Fuel Sender Unit, hose cushion detail.
« on: July 19, 2020, 02:43:21 AM »
I have to replace the fuel sender unit in the gas tank since it wouldn't pickup gas and the fuel gauge wasn't working.

The replacement I got from Classic looks very close. The only detail I'm wondering about is the piece of soft hose that cushioned the hard fuel line where it passed under the tank strap.

See the pictures, the soft hose is the texture of water pipe insulation and is in amazingly good shape after 53 years. There were slight remnants of tape that apparently held it in place.

At first I thought I'd replace it with a section of fuel hose, but after cleanup, it looks like I can just reuse this piece with the new unit.

What do you say

I say reuse it. I reused mine on my car as it was still soft and pliable.
