Does anybody have a photo of a fuel pump sender from an Elan or know what car it came from?

Thanks

Carl,

Fuel Pump Sender? What's that?

Original mechanical pump sends gas to carbs. Nothing else. Even electric replacements don't have senders. Maybe a low-oil-pressure sender, hooked to a relay .....

Do you mean a Fuel Tank Sender, i.e., the gas gauge sender?

Russ,

Bought one from Holden, modified the arm to match the one on the old sender and fitted it. Worked a treat.

Toally amazed that the mounting screws came out easily, I expected them to be rusted in.

Holden charged ?26 + VAT and postage, Lotus dealel wanted ?76 for a 'original' unit!!

Thanks
Carl
