I was going to add my $.02 but don't want to get on the banned wagon.
Right before the Rubicon I developed a fuel leak from the sending unit O ring on my rear tank. Since I needed to drop the tank to replace the O ring and run the fuel return line I decided to replace the finicky sending unit.
I had to adapt the CJ sending unit to YJ tank. Lots of careful tack welding to not overheat the sender.
I also added an extension to the pickup tube to allow all 15 gal to be used.
Before I would run out of gas at 12 gallons. After extending the tube I am able to use all but about 1/2 gallon before running out.
I got the new sending unit in the tank and installed the whole mess with a functioning return line. Tonight's project is the fuel tank valve.
I am hoping to mount it on the floor riser between the seats.
Got it all labeled so I wont get confused when I'm lying on my back this evening......
Finally got the fittings in and the valve mounted. I had to special order the 1/2"NPT-5/16" barb fittings. Its not the prettiest install I've done.... but it will work.
Just need to finish bolting it up and plumbing the return lines.
So are you going to have an electric switch to flip the fuel gauge as well?
Yup, I have a switch on the dash that transfers the sending unit signal.
Do you still have the original/factory Jeep cluster?
