Take a Brake

Post by Logi on Sun Dec 22, 2013 12:14 pm

Had a wee advisory on the front to rear brake pipes so with holiday season here the Jag will be the tool of choice so time for some van workshop  Very Happy 

Need to drop the tank for access, so whilst it's down I'm going to fix the lazy guage.


Q1????
What's with the wires to both bits?  affraid 
Which one is the sender? confused

Large one with the two pipes cominng off Logo is your fuel pump. The small one on the left, the sender has three wires - one of which goes to earth on the tank and the other two into your loom.

It is basically a plastic tube with a float in it and a rheostat.

Can you take/post some pics of the fuel sender as there is only 1 pic in existence online (via google!)

Well, fuel tank's back in, gauge working properly, and a FUEL LIGHT  affraid 

Decided the previous problem with my gauge was the wee cap falling off the sender, it keeps the centre bit central, so to speak Wink Without the cap the float sticks about 1/3 way down, no light, slow to rise when filled. So if anyone has similar symptoms I'd bet that's the problem.

Sound like the same problem as my Smurf has, but I'm blowed if I'm going to bother about it in these temperatures!

Yeah, popped it back on...... Wink

It's not the first time it's been out, I reckon it's had the tank recall done in the past and the sender problem started there.

"Corrosion of the top of the fuel tank may result in a fuel leak."

VOSA website has the issue date as November 2003 but doesn't say what age vehicles may be affected.
