nope. none of it, but i do have the one thing standard that i like more than A/C. FLOOR VENTS!!! and the plus side to them? they don't cause you to burn up extra fuel! which brings this back to my original question...

Another option is a refurbishment of an old unit. I put a post on the old forum with information on a couple of companies. As I recall, you'd be looking at $75-$150. I bought an old unit from another forum member and installed it, so I have a spare that I know needs refurbishment. The one I got doesn't seem to work quite right, so I'm planning to send in my old broken one, get it refurbished, and reinstall it. You're more than welcome to the one that's in my tank right now after I'm done (all I ask is that you send me funds for shipping). Or maybe somebody else has one they can part with...

i also found a sending unit that is recommended by my gauge manufacturer. the only problem with that one is... no pickup tube. i figured i could just rig it up to work, but i might be better off taking the tank for either the turbo mont, or a mustang with an electric fuel pump...

I know this is an old thread, I'm just hoping someone is looking. Did we ever come to a conclusion about the mustang sending units? I just found that the lines running into mine are rotted off and the unit is rusted to the tank. I've found that I can still get a tank however nobody lists a sending unit. Help!!!

Actually, i forgot all about this thread. Yeah, I got a 1970 mustang unit to work. I was for a 14gal stang tank, I have a 16gal... Float is submerged for the first 2gals, then operates like normal... Float arm may need some bending so you get full range...
