Re: Lanchester 11 Petrol Tank Sender

Thank's Marcel, at the moment my sender Unit is with a local company named Carwood who carry out all types of Armature winding , there is an older employee who is taking a look at it, if he is unable to rectify it ,then I will certainly contact David Beals.

Best wishes, and many thanks Al :) :)
