Good afternoon: I need a 6 V tank sending unit or parts to rebuild one. Actually needed for my 1937 Plymouth sedan, but probably similar to my 1945 Dodge 1/2 ton, (hope that makes this truck related). The wire-wound resistance part in mine is bad, also I have several junked units, all with the resistance part not useable. Thanks for any help!

Roberts Motor parts might have something.

Dennis - If you run into a dead end with this, there's an outfit called
John Wolf, in Willoughby OH. For a flat fee, he'll rebuild your sender
completely. Last time I dealt with him was appx 15 years ago, and the
cost was 95 bucks (incl. postage, IIRC)...so have no clue what he
charges nowadays. There are several outfits advertising in
Hemmings that do this work, but he came highly recommended, and I
had no complaints about the work. Good luck with it.

Good evening:
I am late responding, but I did find a person on an antique vehicle forum who knew of a sender available (new reproduction), which I ordered. It is installed and working. BTW, senders for my 1937 Plymouth car and my 1945 Dodge pickup are not the same.

Good to know. The electrical part is a rheostat. Years back even Dennis Carpenter supplier was using a Chevrolet rheostat in there sending units. The resistance chart I found online had the years and makes categorized and you could tell right off what was used on the bench.
