Hi all, just doing a bit of research before I push the button on some new gauges. Firstly, does anyone know the ohms of the standard Datsun (1600) fuel sender? I'm seen a couple of people say it's around 0-90ohms but I haven't seen any proper confirmation on this.
VDO has two gauge options that I can see, this is the catalogue I'm referencing (page 7): http://aftermarket.continental-corporat ... E_2011.pdf
301 010 011 - Fuel gauge (float arm) - 10 - 180 ohms - 12V
) 301 010 010 - Fuel gauge LPG - 5 - 90 ohms - 12V - Suits 5 - 90 ohms LPG tank unit senders.
From what I can tell, there's two ways to go about this.
Fit the 10-180 fuel gauge and use the matching VDO sender that is also 10-180 (part number 220.003). This is what azzdat is doing.
Fit the 5-90 fuel gauge and use the standard Datsun sender, if it is in fact 0-90ohms.
Any feedback is appreciated!
