I need advise b4 i purchase....??????

Post by Brooks424 on Tue Jan 17, 2012 8:09 pm

Ok guys help me out here, i have a 62 beetle (gretchen). i put in an order a while ago with Cip1 for some minor odds and ends. door handles, mirrors and a fuel sending unit. Because the gas gauge doesn't work, well..... it does work but it just floats around half and empty. i want it to work correctly like anyone in their right mind would want. Very Happy the issue i'm having is i obviously ordered the wrong one. i ordered - ORIGINAL STYLE MECHANICAL FUEL TANK SENDER - BEETLE 62-67 / GHIA 62-66. well smarty me went to change it out and low and behold thats not whats in the tank. How do I know for sure which one to order? is there some kind of # on the unit or do i get the #'s off the speedo? id like to place another order soon so any help would be appreciated.

Where is the gas gauge? Is it in the speedo? Or to the right?

The speedo in that car is from a 68 and later with a built in electric fuel gauge. So, that's what you'll need to order.

The back of the speedo should have a year stamp on it.

Thanks guys, y'all were quick with that one. I may get the electric style just to get by for now, but yes I would like to go back original speedo and fuel gauge. Eventually.

Someone has got to have a used one on here (fuel gauge). Post it up in the wanted section if you want to change it. Seems like now is the time. if you notice ppl dont ask an arm and a leg for stuff on here we try to keep it real.

I might be able to fix you up on that speedo and fuel gauge but not sure on the sending unit. But you have one of those already don't you?

Simple check for the gauge is to pull the lead off the sender and ground it while the ignition is on to see if it jumps too full. Do it with the car running or unplug the dizzy so you don't fry the points or module.
