Re: Fuel tank sender unit resitance

On the v8 250
E TO T 250 ohms empty
E TO T About 0 to 15 ohms full
E TO W is used for fuel warning lamp empty 0 to 5 ohms
this may not be the same as the SP

E = EARTH

May be of some help

The engine mounting is very near to the top of the power steering box, It looks like only a 1mm gap and i'm sure its knocking. New mountings have been fitted on the engine and Front suspension, the steering box has a mark on the top made by the mounting before the engine was refitted. Do I need to f...
