I have a '53 Merc with a fuel sender that measures : 7 ohms empty, 97 ohms full. Do I use a fuel gauge with 0-90 ohms? Can I put a 7 ohm resistor in series with the input to the gauge to correct for the sender resistance?

Asked by: Bobbie
Bobbie, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately you wouldn't be able to use a resistor to correct the resistance on the sending unit. Since you are only 7 ohms of resistance off it won't be spot on, but you will be in close enough range for the gauge to still notify you empty and full.

I want to use your gauges to replace the stock console gauges in a 1967 Camaro. Will you 2-1/16" gauges fit? Is this the hole size or the size across the face outside to outside?

Asked by: Larryboy
Hi Larry, thank you for the question. Since we do not make direct OE replacement instruments we wouldn't know if this would fit your Camaro. The hole size for the 1214 is 2-1/16". The outer diameter of the trim or bezel is 2-3/16".

I bought the recommended gauge for my caprice 1989 (Product 1214), my factory sencor is damged and gives error. What sensor after market will be compatible for my guage and car?

Asked by: Couger
Thank you for your question. Product #1214 is a 0-90 Ohm fuel level gauge, which is common among GM vehicles through 1997. While AutoMeter only makes a fuel level sender #3262 which is 240-33 Ohms, you can buy a 0-90 Ohm fuel level sender from the Equus website here: https://www.iequus.com/9982.html This is going to be a fairly simple, universal, 0-90 sending unit. You may want to look elsewhere to find something that is more of a specific replacement to your OEM sending unit. Any 0-90 Ohm sending unit will work with your #1214 fuel level gauge.

Is this compatible with a 30 ohm sending unit in my 65 Nova?

Asked by: Deuce
Hi Deuce, thank you for connecting with us. Since 1965 is right at the transition period for Chevy Fuel Level senders, we'd recommend testing yours to be sure. Officially, we do recognize 1965 as the model year Chevy switched to the 0-90 ohms sender, but we would definitely recommend checking to be certain in this situation. It's possible you have a 0-30 ohm sender, in which case you would have to either replace your sender or use our 1209 Programmable Fuel Level, which features a 0-30 ohm setting.
