Quote from: tsumini on February 13, 2015, 10:09:06 PMI had read that the sender works by changing resistance from full to empty so it should be a variable resistor. The guts of the sending unit is a core wound with resistance wire. The float pivots inside the housing and a wiper blade travels between each end of the core depending on fullness or emptyness. Shown are 100 ohms at left side of core and about 0.5 Ohms at the right side. since I don't have a wheatsone bridge I'm not sure resistance is accurate or not. It really doesn't matter if the gage reads right. So hookup to the gage shows what should be E is about 1/4 on the gage and Full is above the F mark about 1/4. Basically I need to bend the needle back about 1/4 and it should be close.Finally put the cover back on and bend the tabs and check resistance and appears to be ready for install.

How do you prevent another?Cool that you're back on the mini looking forward to the progress, and if you need any assistance on the speedometer let me know glad to help.Jeff
