ok

Guys

So here is the skinny
my tank is drained for the winter . so i was able to remove the sending unit my original gauge connected cap tube is literally 1/3 of an inch above the pump connected tube all tubes are clean as a whistle. It holds a reading in a gallon can until i slosh it around and the bell looses air to
the sloshing .
I cut the 1/4 inch tube and shortened the gauge connected capillary tube to half the length of the 1/4 support bell tube .. soldered everything back together .

it works perfect holds a reading with vagarious sloshing around ..

learned something new .. The gauge connected cap tube position needs to be fairly far inside the 1/4 tube to avoid loosing the fuel level on the gauge it makes perfect sense .

its actually quite disturbing from what i recall. all the units i have worked on the gauge connected cap tube line was always very close to the pump connected cap tube ...

Allan thanks for the knowledge

Regards Ned

James, we pre-A guys have to stick together! Probably no one else cares about some of this pre-A minutia, although I was kinda waiting for a comment from Cliff along the lines of "it is really inaccurate...reads 12 gallons in a one gallon bottle!"
