QUESTIONS:

Are the seals and float made of nitrile and compatible with diesel fuel? Do you make a 24 volt fuel level indicator to match with the Auto Meter 3262 sending unit?

Asked by: Garrett53
Thank you for your inquiry. The 3262 is compatible with diesel. We do not make any 24 volt gauges, however.

I am installing this sender in a fuel cell that has foam in it. Will the foam interfere with the arm operating properly?

Asked by: Jk1267
Thank you for your question. This will not work in your application and, unfortunately, we do not have a different fuel level sending unit available. You will find someone who offers a compatible 240-33ohm sending unit for your application.

How do I make this work on a 6 volt car from the 30's?

Asked by: RICo
Thank you for your question. This sending unit does not require any voltage, so it will work just fine on your application. You will just need to find a gauge that works on 240-33ohms that is compatible with a 6v system as none of our gauges will work.

would this sender unit be compatible with Product #: 4314-SP0B, if not would you have one that is

Asked by: Edmond
Thank you for your question. No, it is not compatible with 4314 which is 0-90Ohms. We do not have a 0-90Ohm sending unit.

Hello, I have your fuel sending unit in my vehicle ( factory five cobra mk1) which has a 88 mustang fuel tank, is there a “no” hole mounting plate ?? Or adapter? Previous owner tried to caulk the 5 holes mounts:/ doesn’t work !! thanks

Asked by: Vtx1
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have any adapter that will work for your situation. You could run a remote ground wire to the sensor if you can find a way to mount it.

Just installed your 3260 Sending unit in tank. I am using your 1607 fuel gauge. Added about 5 gals of gas to tank. When I started the engine the fuel gauge went to PAST full and stays there. Any ideas to solve this problem?

Asked by: CB 296
This could possibly be a grounding issue. If the sending unit is not properly grounded it would increase the resistance. Increased resistance will make the gauge react same as putting more fuel in the tank.

Hello, Is there a way to make low fuel warning dashboard light work with this sending unit? Any suggestions are welcomed. Thank you

Asked by: milan65
Hi Milan, thank you for the question. Our 3262 sender is simply a variable resistor that measures from 240 ohms at empty to 33 ohms at full. The only way this would work for an existing warning light was if that warning light measured resistance and could be adjusted or was set to warn at a resistance near empty on the sender. Our only suggestion would be our 5609 Elite Fuel Level that features a programmable, full dial warning settings and will work with the 3262.

i see that the unit uses an arm to show the level. with the vibrations of going over bumps make the level constantly change on the gauge?

will this fit a 1993 honda prelude and if not is there an adapter so I don't have to modify this?

Asked by: Hertchu
Can not answer your question directly. However, I found it fairly easily to remove the white plastic rheostat, take it apart, swap the float holder to the opposite side (has a spring and 2 caps inside, so disassemble it carefully) and mount it on an fuel pump assembly. I installed a '97 Mercury Mountaineer fuel tank under the bed of my '72 Ford pickup and using all AutoMeter gauges.

How do I set the fuel guage to read my sending unit,my guage has two buttons on it,my sending float is 240 full and 33 empty

Asked by: Stan
Hi Stan, thank you so much for contacting us. It totally depends on the gauge you have. Without knowing the exact gauge you've got, it would be tough to say for certain. Guessing based on the limited information I've got, I'd suggest maybe looking at this instruction: https://www.autometer.com/media/manual/2650-1443.pdf With that said, it very well could be another unit. It may be best to look at your gauge and give our tech team a call at 866.248.6357. Hope this helps!

will this sending unit be a direct fit on a 1955 chevy 210 sedan gas tank ?

Asked by: doug2
Hi Doug, thank you so much for contacting us. This sending unit is adjustable, and therefore will work with most tank setups that utilize a 5 bolt mounting flange. We also have a 6 bolt adapter available for applications that utilize that flange. I wouldn't call it a direct fit as it isn't designed specifically for one vehicle. Depending on the configuration of your fuel pickup, that may need to be accounted for in the installation as well. Hope this helps!

working on a John Deere 675B. I applied resistance in 10 ohm increments in line to ground. At 40 ohms produces a full mark gage reading, 90 ohms full side of 1/2, 100 ohms empty side of 1/2. Extrapolation: 150 empty - 40 full. Will this sendor work?

Asked by: TA55044
Thank you for contacting us. If your gauge is designed to read a 150-40 ohm sender, we don't feel you would get very good results with this sender. You will have inaccurate results from full to half, but more importantly, potentially 1/4 to 1/2 left in the tank with the gauge reading empty.

I have a customer that has a fuel cell and he wants me to install a guage, is there a sender that can be used with a fuel cell?

Asked by: Nelson
Hi Nelson, thank you so much for contacting us. This is the one and only fuel level sender that we offer, but we have definitely used them with fuel cells before. If you've got a foam lined cell, you'll want to look into the shaft style senders which are available typically through the fuel cell manufacturer. We offer a number of different resistance ranges in our fuel level gauges that ill match up with every common fuel sender range. Hope this helps!
