Wanted: Sending Unit/Fuel Pump

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, found out why my fuel gauge hasn't been working for the past few months. Pulled the fuel pump out and checked the sending unit. Seems there was a lot of resin/corrosion between the "slider arm" and the copper wire strip. It ate through the wiring in 4 different spots (looked like it shorted out). After swapping 3 different fuel gauges, decided to pull the pump today.  '90 MJ, 2.5, short bed, small tank.

If anyone has one, please let me know what you want ($) for it plus shipping to 66607 (Topeka, Ks.).


Many many thanks in advance, Papa Mel

Hi "Gatorgirl", 

Took the old sending unit apart, found out the "card" was totally burnt in two pieces, wire winding was shorted out and burned in 4 spots. Had to buy another pump hanger assembly just to get another sending unit. The gas gauge is working once again :)

Thank you, Papa Mel

Happy Trails :)
