Hello!

I saw that Two Stroke to Turbo were breaking a 1984 99GL (same as mine), so I asked them if there was a fuel sender going spare.
My gauge shows that my tank is a quarter full no matter how much I put in - I tried cleaning the contacts of the sender but it made no difference.

Anyway, Two Stroke asked if it is a tube one or an arm one. I thought given they were breaking the same model I'd just have the one that was in there, but I guess not...

Does anyone know which type I have? If it helps, I took a photo of the top: https://imgur.com/a/RFn6M

Thanks!
Keith

Actually, I think I may have answered my own question. Looks to be the 'arm' type, having checked all the various types there were.

Now I just need to find one.

Yes, going by the part number stamped on the top it is an arm type. Best thing to do is to give them the part number and let them work it out for themselves.

D'oh! Are any fixable? I might take mine out and give it a hard stare. That'll make it work again, right?

Depends on your powers.

Usually the fault is with the wire windings that the lever rubs against and wears out, now if you could get them rewound, giving the correct resistance then I would be interested.
