Camino LS6

Uh oh, might have a problem

Recommended Posts

The gas gauge in the wagon hasn't ever worked, and I really want to fix it before I drive the car again.

The number one suspect , of course, is the fuel tank sending unit.

They are available for every bodystyle of '73-'77 Chevelle/El Camino.... except the wagon.

Let's hope it's a bad wire...

Is the tank shaped differently in the wagon, maybe a different depth? Not sher why the wagon is segregated.

In the wagon, the tank is mounted inside the driver's rear quarter panel - totally different than El Camino, coupe and sedan.

^ Yea, I remember our family's '77- same design.

You might be able to Frankenstein one together if it is the sender- bones of the old & some of the new- they're pretty simple.

That thought crossed my mind - maybe modify a coupe or Camino version...

They say if they float, there's something wrong. Healthy ones sink.

I'll find out once I get it apart - I want to get the tank sealed and painted while I'm at it since it isn't available either.
