MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - what fuel guage to use(ohms?)
|Hey Guys,Im having a problem with the fuel guage,does anybody know what are the ohms on the sender,I would like to use an autometer guage like my other guages.Thanks|
|I used a VDO part #301 105 in my '79 B (240-30)ohms. It is easy to verify with ohmmeter, just measure from sender to ground with a empty and full tank.|
|Hi Bill, |
Talking about fuel gauges, I changed all my gauges to VDO exept the fuel gauge altough I have the VDO gauge with me. It doesn't work with the original MGB sender. Do you know that if I order the VDO part 305 105 if it would work with the VDO fuel gauge?

|Mine works perfectly, but measure the ohms to be sure. The moss cat. shows the same sending unit for car #'s 415000 on which is sometime in 1977. The 301 105 is the Vision series (illuminated needle and numbers). Part # 301 029 is the cockpit series (backlit).|
|Just found the measurements I made on my cars - about 35ohms full nd about 300ohms empty. They do seem to vary quite a bit hence the need to recalibrate the gauge when replacing the sender.|
