This option requires that you send your core in advance. Your core gets rebuilt and returned. If you don't have a core, WCCC has come across a few from our wrecking yard, give us a call to discuss details.
Our service is to rebuild your sending unit. A quality core is required. Yes, we can rebuild other than 1967-73 Mercury Cougar and Ford Mustang sending units. 1967-1980 Ford / Mercury / Lincoln sending units accepted. See our related listing for non-low fuel sending unit rebuilding.
A quality core must be complete and not overly corroded. We are unable to convert from non-low fuel to low fuel. We also cannot change plugs for different years. We do not repair rust or rust through holes. We do not have critical or specific spare parts for rebuilding. Please understand that some units may be too far gone to rebuild. You will be contacted, there is a minimum charge for initial analysis if the unit is deemed too poor to repair.
Rebuilding of the Low Fuel Sending Unit they are meticulously gone through and made operational again. All sending units are taken apart and media blasted. Once cleaned, the thermistor is carefully removed from the tube and opened up so that the mesh screen and insulator can be chemically cleaned. All wire leads are tested for ohm resistance, then re-soldered to their contact points if needed. Upon reassembly, initial testing is done with VOM.
Calibration is not done by bending the arm! Calibration is done internally, so each time an adjustment is made, the housing is reopened.
When all this is done, a reading is taken for empty, half, and full tank. It's important to note that these were never high precision instruments. Once testing is complete, the housing is closed and in some cases soldered. The temperature of the thermistor is measured to establish that it is showing the correct resistance for that temperature, then immersed in water to verify function.
Returned with a new 5/16 or 3/8 inch filter, brass float, and sending unit gasket.
