Elite Fuel sending unit issue

Recommended Posts

Hi, I finally had time to remove the 5 gallon fuel cell the previous owner installed on my '74 Elite. I now have a clean and solid original tank installed.  The problem is that the fuel gauge is not reading.  I'm familiar with fuel sending units that only have two wires while this one has three.  I'm guessing the wires are for: the ground, gauge, warning light. I grounded the the wire to the gauge and the gauge responded by moving from empty to full.  So I believe the issue is with the fuel sending unit. I'm going to remove the sending unit and test the resistance / ohms between the ground and the wire to the gauge.  I wanted to know if there is anything else I should look at or test?  Also where can one get a new sending unit?
