e
lf the above "E" and "F" readings are correct, the fuel
level sender is bad. If these readings are not obtained,
the trouble is with the fuel level gauge, voltage regulator,
or wiring.
Fuel level sender check
eRemove
the fuel level sender, and check that
the
float
moves up
and
down smoothly without binding.
It
should go down under its own weight from top to
stop.
If the float does not move smoothly, replace
the
sender.
eMeasure
the resistance of the fuel level sender with an
ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter does not show the values
in
the table, or the reading does not vary smoothly
as the fuel level changes, replace the sender.

Level gauge check
eOpen

assembly.
e<:heck
the resistance of the
meter
using an
ohmmeter
as shown in
Table K25.
If the resistance in this test
is found to
be
less than the
proper
value, there is
a short
in the
meter.
No
reading

circuit. In either case, replace the

e<:onnect
the 12 volt battery as shown in Fig.
