    RCR fuel level sending unit specs

    I used those on my GTD, they had to be converted to work with the smiths gauges otherwise they showed full when empty, they are sold by Wema here in the U.K., they did the change for me.

    GTD Fuel Level Sender

    The mounting hole on each tank is directly above the bottom of the angle in the tank, different lengths of senders are available and mounting has to be adapted also Wema have to reverse the sender electronics to match the Smiths gauges or they read full when empty and empty when full.

    GTD Fuel Level Sender

    After numerous problems with Smiths senders which use plastic float bearing which seems to be affected by modern petrol because when taken off the tank after a couple of weeks they work fine, I now use Wema fuel level senders converted to work with Smiths gauges, so far fine.
