Interesting, been wondering why lately my fuel gauge seemed to begin reading low soon after a fill-up. Started to drop to like an 1/8th of a tank and would just sit there for quite a few more miles. Pulled the sending unit from the tank, sure enough - the float is half full of fuel! Fortunately, since my recent acquisition of a 73GT, I pulled the sending unit off of that one and swapped it - now the gauge reads little less than 1/2 tank! Weird too, the sending unit I just took out is o...

Hopefully, by eliminating the nearly 1 inch gap from shrinkage will cut down on road noise in the cabin as well as rain water getting in. Also took the time to replace the battery cut-out switch. It was a HF unit (glad I bought a spare) and just got all wonky last week - thought I had a dead battery but found the switch just wasn't making consistent contact when engaged - I guess $3 bucks eve...
