Q: Fuel Guage Sending Unit Sock
A few weeks back I was looking for information on how to replace the sock on the fuel gauge sending unit. Anyone ever done it? Is it hard to do? Got advice????
A: This weekend, I took a look at my sending unit. The sock was missing, so there was little filtration going on in that fuel system. But the retaining ring that held the sock in place was still there. There were traces of the sock mesh on the edges of the ring, so it looks like it had been torn off. No sign of the sock in the gas tank. Judging by the ring I saw, and pictures of the sock in various catalogs, it would appear that the sock simply slips over the end of the pick-up tube. The sock has a built in ring at the open end. I was able to remove the sock ring with no difficulty at all. Installation should be a simple slip fit.
